Almost 4,000 ready to take part in Redd Up

Almost 4,000 volunteers have signed up to take part in this year’s Voar Redd Up – but Shetland Amenity Trust would like to see more involved.

Sita Goudie, Environmental Improvement Officer at the Trust said: “We have already welcomed a number of new groups and would be happy to hear from anyone else who would like to get involved. New and established groups are also looking for willing volunteers, including one group which hopes to clear the roadsides from Gremista Junction to the SIC Waste Management Facility, so please get in touch if you would like to help in any way.”

Anyone interested can register by calling the trust on 01595 694688 or e-mailing

For groups already registered, packs containing gloves, bags and safety vests are awaiting collection from the trust’s offices at Garthspool. Groups are reminded to inform the trust after their Redd Up is finished so bruck can be collected as soon as possible.

    Wow! Congratulations to the organisers!

    If this is indicative of the strength of community spirit in Shetland there is no way an autonomous Shetland cannot or will not be hugely successful.
