The 'Exercise on prescription' scheme.
This scheme is available to anyone on Stronsay who has a medical condition that would be improved by exercise (i.e. obesity, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, etc). If you are interested please see the GP or one of the community nurses. It is free so there are only so many places at a time, you really must be committed to the programme.

Looking for work (full time or part time or flexible)
between now and September 2016, anything considered
James Davidson, Greenfields, phone 616498 or 0756 528 20 20

ACCESS TO STRONSAY SCHOOL
There is still no access to school via the main door or front playground due to the building of our new entrance area. Everyone will access the school building through the North Door (beside HLC) for the duration of the building work. The school office will be situated adjacent to the North Door. There is a dropping off/collecting point for parents/visitors in front of Science lab/History room where the flower planters are. Parents are asked not to park in the area in front of HLC to allow buses to have access in and out of the school. Barriers are installed to separate buses from pedestrians. Thanks in advance for your co-operation during this period.
