SHETLANDERS have been asked to have their say on the future of sport in the isles.
A survey has been launched to garner feedback on the five-year Shetland Sport Strategy, which was launched in 2012.
The strategy was coined to create a long-term vision of how sport in Shetland should be developed.
It was devised by Shetland Islands Council, Shetland Recreational Trust, NHS Shetland and sportscotland in conjunction with coaches, clubs and sports participants.
Chairman of the Shetland Sporting Partnership Strategic Group George Smith said the public survey can help “shape” the future of sport in the isles.
“The Shetland Sports Strategy has now been in place for 4 years, and a significant amount of work has been done towards the vision set out in 2012,” he said.
“We are now reviewing the progress made and I would invite everybody to give us their opinions, to help us evaluate the existing strategy and to shape the future direction for sport and physical activity in Shetland.”
Those interested in taking part in the survey, which can be found here, have until 11 September to submit their views.
