The Save Our Station campaign got a boost on Tuesday as the Guizer Jarl signed the petition in front of the bill head. Organisers of the petition (pictured above) are protesting against the threatened closure of the Shetland Coastguard station due to government cutbacks.
I believe many people signed the petition which is very encouraging to help preserve this vital service. According to the Save Shetland Coastguard website, over 5000 signatures have now been received. To register your signature visit http://www.gopetition.com/petition/41468/sign.html.
I wish them good luck and will be keeping a close eye on future developments.
