  1. Does anyone know when the new series starts?
  2. Yes it is an Orkney company - Bathroom World, also stocking Fired Earth tiles, Aga's and Rayburns.
  3. Going back to the Planning issues. The actual developers should be more accountable and that is what the Planning Department are trying to encourage - developers shoudl be taking more responsiblity for what they are proposing the build on our landscape. Everyone has to make a living, but when financial gain is to the detriment of our beautiful landscape, its dreadful.
  4. The food reviews in the Shetland Life are bang on. At last someone is publishing what we are all thinking.
  5. I would like to see Tesco come to Shetland, Somerfields range is very poor and not a British vegetable in sight. Co-op not really much better.
  6. Hi, would anyone happen to know a good website featuring Up Helle Ah to send to someone in Iceland? He is travelling to Shetland to see it and thought it woudl be good to send him a link. Thanks
  7. The best reestit mutton this year is fae the Scalloway Meat Co if anyone is interested.
  8. I think this may be an Environmental Services issue and may be an idea to speak to them.
  9. Yes, the buildings next the the Salvation Army need knocking down. Its an eye sore for locals as well as folk getting their first taste of Lerwick wandering into the centre off the boat in a morning.
  10. I know from family who have B&B in Shetland, guests often (not all though) comment on how bleak Lerwick looks. I was thinking more of the shop fronts, refuse boxes placed at the sides of buildings rather than in front etc.............. Maybe i have nothing to do today..........!
  11. Does anyone else think Lerwick is in need of a bit of a face lift? It seems to be so run down in parts and not only in need of a good clean up, but money spent on completely rejuvenating Commercial Road. Its all so bleak and dreery looking.
  12. The dry cleaners in town offer a sewing service. Could try them.
  13. Heard really good reports about that place. The Sarmile is the best curry house in Britain. Cafe India in Glasgow is second best.
  14. On Wednesday this week we were due to fly to Edinburgh and to cut a long story short, we were given dinner vouchers to go across to the local hotel to get something to eat. It had to be seen to be belived the food they were serving. We ordered from the menu and basically couldn't eat anything on the plate. Soup, inedible as was the salad, beef stroganoff and vegetable sir fry. I dont know who could have been in the kitchen to have served up food like that. There were a good few moans and groans going on, but none of the staff seemed to be bothered. When our waitness came to collect out plates, she saw very little had been eaten but didn't ask us why. Im not sure as to who one should direct a comment/complaint to, but BA/Loganair will be informed. Im sure they have a huge contract with this hotel and to serve food like that to anyone is a disgrace. Its now Friday and i still can't get over how bad that food was!
