FOY - Shetland and the Sea
This year's Foy will be held on Sunday 23 August from 2pm to 4pm in the City of Wellington Pipe Band Hall, cnr Stoke and Hansen Streets, Newtown.
Interpretive boards will tell the story of Shetland and the Sea, there will be games for the children, and everyone is invited to bring along any artefact, memorabilia or keepsake relating to the subject for display. The library will be available and we will have a shared afternoon tea.
Entry is a gold coin donation and a small plate to share for afternoon tea. The committee look forward to seeing you on the 23rd.
THE VIKING II PROJECT
Our Society is delighted we can support and promote a new and exciting venture to learn more about the genetic roots of many health conditions. Viking II is seeking 4000 volunteers - the only condition is that you must have at least two of your four grandparents from Shetland or Orkney.
