Announcing the new Scotland Island Community Website

We are very pleased and excited to announce, that SIRA has published a new version of the Scotland Island Community website.

Follow link here to full announcement

The website provides a wide range of information; represents our community to the wider world; supports the delivery of a number of services; and helps promote and facilitate a number of activities and groups and will assist us to further engage with our community.

This version of the website has an Events Calendar, an Online Local Directory, a News Feed, is mobile phone and tablet enabled, and a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section.

The new website is the product of a team effort, led by Hubert van Mierlo, who project managed the site, and Carol Floyd, who managed editorial and content and who has been involved in this project for the past few years.

I would also like to thank the many people who contributed content (Ruth Gaines, Cass Gye, Shar Jones, Bill Gye, Jane Wood), photos (June Lahm, Sam Collins, Hubert van Mierlo, Carol Floyd, Jenny Frazer, Chuck Bradley, Church Point Ferry Service, Colin Haskell, Michael Doherty, Julian Muir, and drawings courtesy of Gwyn Perkins), and testing/proofreading (Tim Turpin, Tracy Smith, David Hegarty, Phil Pryor, Adrian Matthews, Sharon Kinnison, Cass Gye,  Jenny Frazer, Tanya Costin and Alan Gaines).

Finally, I would like to thank those who worked on planning the site under the previous Communications Working Group: Jon Maxim, Carol Floyd, Judy Readman, Ruth Gaines, Cass Gye, Julian Muir and Dan Humphrey.  

We encourage you all to explore the new site and contact the website with any announcements, ideas, corrections, or photographs, etc.  We hope it will become an integral part of community life please click the following link, add it to your favourites and enjoy…
