SHEEP SHEARING COURSE
Suzanne Davidson asks
"there would be a possibility to have a sheep shearing course organised on Stronsay.
The one on mainland Orkney would require two nights over there due to ferry timetable so too expensive
To organise it on Stronsay we need a minimum of another 4 participants.
So who would be interested it it?"

STRONSAY FRIDAY NIGHT GAMES CLUB
Barbara Deavin (teacher at Stronsay school) is hoping to reinstate the Friday night games club at the Community Centre.
She needs some trusty volunteers to help her for approximately two hours on a Friday evening.
If, for instance, ten people volunteered they would only need to do a "duty" once every ten weeks.
If you're interested please ring Barbara on 305.
