Andrew takes the helm

ROUND the world yachtsman Andrew Halcrow has taken the helm of anti-Viking Energy campaign group Sustainable Shetland.

Following a committee meeting of the 830 members strong group eight days ago, teacher Frank Hay was confirmed as the group’s vice-chairman, taking over from temporary chair Allen Fraser.

The changes follow the resignation of former chairman Billy Fox who is standing for council in the Shetland south ward. He has also stepped down as a committee member.

The group restated their opposition to the development, which they maintain, still threatens the financial and environmental wellbeing of Shetland.

Mr Halcrow said: “Our opposition to Viking Energy’s plans is far from over. We will continue to support the views of our members and to defend the rights of those people who would be directly affected by the Viking wind farm if it is ever actually built.”
