To all friends and residents of Scotland Island and the Bays
In response to many requests to come and see the Byzantine Crucifix
commission that Dimitri has been working on all year, we have decided
to have an open studio to
allow people the opportunity to see it before it leaves the Island.
We will have an open house/ studio next Sunday the 12th
January from 1pm til 5pm.
Please feel welcome to bring a drink and stay for a while.

Snakes around our
number of snakes spotted recently
A number of snakes have been seen around the island recently, including
possibly a brown snake or common death added, golden crowned snake and
you see a snake close to your house:
- Do not approach the snake - Most
snakebites occur when people try to catch and kill them
- Keep pets away from the area -
Dogs and cats may be curious or aggressive towards snakes
- Watch it from a safe vantage point
- Ideally watch it from an elevated platform
- DO NOT wash
bite site or attempt to suck or cut! This will complicate the situation
and will not let the venom I.D kits give accurate reading.
- Rest and reassure casualty.
- Bandage firmly! To stop/slow lymphatic spread of
Cover bite site then work
from fingers/toes and cover the whole limb firmly, being careful not to
go to tight as to cut off the blood flow to the limb, as tight as you
would a sprained ankle is ideal!!
Mark on top of bandage where the bite is so that the doctor knows where
to open to get swab for venom I.D kit.
- Call 000 or 112 on mobiles.
- Under NO circumstances attempt to remove the bandage
until in medical staffs hands
