Not Money for Old Rope
The Nevi Skerry Beacon, at the entrance to Scapa Flow, needs repainting. It was last coated some 20 years ago when Health & Safety rules were not so stringent. Then a contraption involving a chair was set up and lowered onto the structure. Now scaffolding will be required and the tenders for the work will probably be between £50,000 - £85,000. Read the report in The Press and Journal before getting carried away with a notion involving 'money and old rope'!
