As you will know Ian and Fiona will be closing the shop on Saturday 1st February. We will all miss the tremendous service they have provided to the community for over a generation.

 Over the last few months the Community Shop Steering Group have continued to work with the appointed consultants to gather information and views about the feasibility of establishing a community shop on the island. A number of you attended the drop-in sessions and provided comments and views at the end of last year. Thanks to everyone for your help and co-operation with this process.

There is still a little more work to do – but a report will be presented to the community, at an open day, for consideration during March.


Meanwhile if you have any queries or require further information please contact Jackie at the Trust on 220974 or email
