Fun fair relocates

THE MIDSUMMER fun fair in Lerwick has had to be relocated from the town centre amidst concerns from local shop keepers about health and safety issues.

Local businessman Malcolm Younger who organises the annual event, said he had listened to professional advice and secured an alternative site at the old fire station in Grantfield.

The decision was made after work had already started erecting the fun fair outside the Clydesdale Bank on Wednedsday.

Younger said: “Due to the size of the equipment we had to move to a different site. I think this is appropriate because I want everything to be safe.

“We have also listened to local shop keepers and have taken their concerns on board.

“I would like to say thank you for the help and professionalism from council officials; everybody has been pulling together to get the issue resolved.”

The midsummer carnival parade on Saturday evening is unaffected by this change.
