ACCESS TO STRONSAY SCHOOL
As from Monday 5th October, there will be 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 which should last around 8 weeks. The school office will be situated adjacent to the North Door. There will be 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 to be installed to separate busses from pedestrians. Thanks in advance for your co-operation during this period.

RNLI FUNDRAISERS REQUIRED
Stronsay RNLI committee is currently looking for new volunteer members to help with fundraising events throughout the year.
In recent years our community has done exceptionally well in supporting the RNLI but we need more of you to help to secure the future of the Stronsay branch.
If you think you can help contact Anne-marie at Storehouse or Andy at Hillside.
