The chance has emerged for young people to form squads in time for next year’s Junior Up-Helly-A’.
Applications from youngsters in P7, S1 and S2 are being invited.
The Junior Up-Helly-A’ committee has encouraged parents or guardians to help young people complete squad detail forms in time for the 1st December deadline.
Organisers have pointed out that Junior Up-Helly-A’ will offer an opportunity to have an equal gender split of guizers.
It comes after 13 year-old Oran McCulloch was elected as the new Junior Guizer Jarl (see this week’s Shetland Times).
