Book of condolence opened for Mandela
A book of condolence has been opened so people can pay their respects to Nelson Mandela who died on Thursday night.
The book will be located inside the main door at Lerwick Town Hall and will be available to the public Monday to Friday during office hours.
Shetland Islands Council convener Malcolm Bell said: ”Given Nelson Mandela’s unique contribution to world events, which transcended all boundaries, I feel it appropriate to open a book of condolence to allow Shetland people to express their thoughts and appreciation for his life”.
Mr Bell will be adding his contribution to the book on Monday morning.
