In this week’s The Orcadian
This week’s edition of The Orcadian is now in shops and is available online, here.
Our front page this week covers the continuing situation at Advocacy Orkney after co-funders Orkney Islands Council and NHS Orkney withdrew vital funding due to an alleged “serious breach” by an advocate.
John Foulis and Advocacy Orkney say they remain in the dark as to what the allegation is, and says claims that he overstepped his remit is “completely unfounded”.
Also in this week’s newspaper, a chance for one lucky reader to win a two nights’ bed and breakfast stay for two people at The Station Hotel in Aberdeen.
The prize, worth around £200, includes a bottle of wine, dinner for one night and high tea for another night, and is valid for one year.
