The Orkney News Team 2019

As we enter the 2nd year of The Orkney News it’s a big welcome to all our new readers and a huge thank you to our existing ones who have stayed with us on this journey.

The Orkney News is a not for profit company with 5 Directors and many contributors. Everyone is a volunteer. We set up The Orkney News to give a voice to those who were not being heard in our community and to publish evidence based articles.

The 5 Directors are:
