The guest speaker will be Gavin McColgan, from the Republic of Ireland who has been working with peace and reconciliation charity organisation fighting hatred among two divided communities Irish and British in Northern Ireland. Several other activities are included including: video presentation and group discussion. Food & drinks available. Everyone Welcome. Best Regards, Prospect YPN Sumburgh Airport
Just when you think things can't sink any lower in Shetland I read this. http://www.shetnews.co.uk/letters/3538-casual-racism.html I am almost lost for words. The only Gollywogs I ever knew were the peerie guys on the marmalade jars and it was nothing more than a peerie character. As a peerie boy I enjoyed looking for the different character each time a new jar arrived in the hoose. I think the dolls are kinda cute and am ower blyde that a peerie shop in Lerwick is selling them. And as for the allegation that there's an underlying racism in Shetland.... Honestly, I think some folk need to get a grip.......
