In this week’s edition of The Orcadian
This week’s edition of The Orcadian is now available from all the usual outlets and online, here.
This week’s front page features a story on the disappointment, frustration and anger that has been expressed in Orkney following the news that a lack of agreement between the Scottish Government and Pentland Ferries over RET has led to no discounted fares being introduced on Pentland Firth ferry routes in time to meet the government’s self-imposed deadline of the end of June. Pentland Ferries says the legal issues over the discount scheme have yet to be answered.
Also in this week’s 56-page newspaper:
• 30 years after the Piper Alpha disaster, an Orcadian man who survived the flames speaks about his life since the tragic disaster.
• Celebrating 25 years of the Orkney Fossil and Heritage Centre.
• A local MSP highlights the importance of Orkney’s agricultural show week.
