Information boards unveiled in Lerwick

A series of information panels about Lerwick’s street names and the town’s history are now on display.

The boards at Harrison Square include material on Shetland and Lerwick place names, as well as facts about the town’s historical and geographical points of interest, and insight into Lerwick’s lanes.

The panels were created by Lerwick Community Council, working with Shetland Amenity Trust.

They were officially unveiled yesterday.

Community council chairman Jim Anderson said today that he was happy to see them up.

“It’s a beautiful sunny day so hopefully tourists and locals alike will enjoy them.”
