• The roads service of the Shetland Islands Council is carrying out a programme of surface dressing on Shetland’s roads over the summer months.

  • The Lerwick town centre, business improvement district scheme called Living Lerwick, is holding its latest annual general meeting next Wednesday.

  • With the better weather of the summer months, householders in Shetland are being warned not to be taken in by door-to-door sales-people.

  • Work is continuing to empty the Morrison Dock in Lerwick harbour to allow repair work to start. The Lerwick Port Authority had said on Thursday that, as new quaysides have come into use, the port authority is embarking on a renewed maintenance programme for some older quaysides, to maintain overall capacity.

  • The Morrison Dock has also been home since March 2013 of the three story floatel, coastel, or accommodation barge, the Bibby Stockhom, with accommodation for five hundred and fifty guests in two hundred and thirteen bedrooms. The tug Mustang is due on Monday to tow away the Bibby Stockholm.
