Fire festival bill offers light relief

Hopes of seeing the Scalloway Fire Festival this year may be up in smoke due to Covid, but that hasn’t stopped a bill from going up.

It calls on guizers not to muster due to the coronavirus restrictions. The event, like Up-Helly-As across the isles, is not going ahead because of coronavirus.

But the committee has still taken the time to put together its annual observation of goings on in the village.
