Visions of the future

Tuesday, February 27th, is the day that visions for the future will be presented in Stornoway. It starts off at midday in the Town Hall, when traffic measures will be put on display until 8.30pm. Proposals for a one-way system, involving Lewis Street amongst others, can be inspected. The number of carparking spaces will also be increased under same proposals. Probably not like it was foreseen during the 2005 Stornoway Carnival.

At 7 o'clock In the evening of the same day, Western Isles Health Board is organising a public meeting in the Education Unit at Western Isles Hospital in Stornoway to present its vision of the future for health services in these islands. Meeting starts at 7pm. The aim for this revamp is to bring health care as locally as possible.

I remember similar proposals from a meeting on 1 December 2005, and it'll be interesting to see how much has been carried over. At the time, the breakdown of trust between management and staff overshadowed the otherwise necessary review.

    "Hi Arnish, I see from yesterdays papers that your yard may be resurrected to build Pelamises ( should that be Pelamides, hellenic scholars please assist ) for our wave farm."

    "I totally agree with Annie B regarding the posting from Arnish but do they know something we don,t,is there going to be a massive sale at Woolworth in the not to distant future for cars to park like that.And did she realise that her congratulations was also well justified for the Arnish posting in that they solved the parking problem in stornoway,with out knowing it,or at least not pointing out the fact that they knew.? that essentially if you can,t find anymore land to create parking space ,"the only way is up" as to where, let me see, who took away the parking spaces we had for the new art centre,.Hmmm, me thinks its a case of the man who was handed a plate of mince for the first time,he didn,t like the look of it so he instructed the cook to take it away,don,t you want it the cook asked him,no said the man,give it to the bugger who chewed it,let him eat it,Use your imagination ,you will figure it out,."
