A method used by the former residents of St Kilda , the mail-boat, is being used by a Shetland group - CURE (Communities United for Rural Education). Six boats were launched yesterday from various sites on the archipelago as a cry for attention to the closure, actual or proposed, of some schools. Details are to be found either in the boats themselves or through this Shetland Times item.
