Letters / Thanks to councillors

As the dust settles on the Toft pier issue, and both parties are now working together to get the best possible outcome, I would like to thank all the councillors (Alastair Cooper, Andrea Manson and Robert Henderson) who fought so hard on our behalf (Scallop fishermen stuck ashore after council shuts off access to unsafe Toft pier; SN, 07/12/16)

Attending the meeting of the harbour board on Wednesday at the Shetland Museum and Archives and actually seeing them putting forward our case showed us the sheer dedication by our local councillors.

I also would like to thank the council’s infrastructure director Maggie Sandison and her team for taking the time to sit with us and the discuss options; we are now hopeful for a brighter outcome.
