      shetlandpeat There may be a need to visit. Our Dad is in the Gilbert Bain, he is not too well, some difficult choices by us. He is not able to make the choices himself. It is a daunting thought process.

    shetlandpeat Tomorrow, I would think ALL of Shetland Island Councils Councillors will have read the letter I sent them regarding Freefield and Viewforth. I will keep folk updated here and on my FB site for those who have a link. I will not divulge the content of any replies unless they are pertinent, I will divulge those who do not reply. I am happy to add a page to my FB site for Freefield but would need another admin who is already linked to my FB site ;-]

      shetlandpeat So far I have had a phone call from Cllr Jonathon Wills and Cllr Andrew Hughson . At the time of writing, no others. Cllr Wills rang the morning after getting my letter. He said that he had been inundated with letters, I would imagine others have been too. I hope other folk write. Councillors need to know the real feeling of the folk who elected them.

    Please sign folks, but remember to only sign once. You should also email your councillors but best to write a letter. The Freefield is a well used and liked provision, it provides folk with a hot meal, social interactions and let old friends stay in ...

    Just below the two huts centre left, is the remains of a cable marker pole, the cable can still be seen going into the sea. It is similar to the ones that went along the bay at Saxa Vord, no one seems to be able to identify it, I was wondering if it ...
