A message from Adrian Miller
Following a transport meeting recently Orkney Ferries has asked for Isles communities to put forward dates for Sunday excursions which possibly could be added to the summer timetable 2015 we are working on. An example could be if there was a wedding in Stronsay on a Saturday night, then the posibility could be the ferry would make a return trip to Kirkwall on a Sunday morning, or something simmilar, nothing guaranteed but the chance to discuss. They have also said that the lunchtime Monday and Wednesday ferry to Stronsay is under used and are exploring the possibility of linking us with Eday and giving Sanday a direct boat instead, we have responded by saying we think we are due a direct boat in Summer at least to make up for the countless number of journeys where we are last.
Loganair would like to feedback that it wants all isles residents to allow at least one hour from when an Islander plane gets in to Kirkwall before joining an onward flight outwith Orkney.

PLEASE NOTE - mobile library visit is on TUESDAY 23 SEPTEMBER and not as advertised in the Limpet
