There is now less than a week left for the people of Shetland to give their views on the future of Shetland Charitable Trust.
Any comments received by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) after next Thursday, 23 February, will be ignored.
If you are happy that the trust has a permanent majority of unelected members, and probably no elected trustees at all, in perpetuity, you need do nothing.
If you believe that the £240m and more of trust assets should be restored to democratic control by an elected majority of trustees, please write to OSCR today.
The address is:
OSCR – Charity Reorganisation
… or you can send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or you complete the comment form in this week’s Shetland Times.

Shetland News is asking its many readers to consider start paying for their dose of the latest local news delivered straight to their PC, tablet or mobile phone.
Journalism comes at a price and because that price is not being paid in today’s rapidly changing media world, most publishers - national and local - struggle financially despite very healthy audience figures.
Most online publishers have started charging for access to their websites, others have chosen a different route. Shetland News currently has over 440 supporters who are all making small voluntary financial contributions. All funds go towards covering our cost and improving the service further.
Your contribution will ensure Shetland News can: -
- Bring you the headlines as they happen;
- Stay editorially independent;
- Give a voice to the community;
- Grow site traffic further;
- Research and publish more in-depth news, including more Shetland Lives features.
