In the Red on Scalpay

The sign of red in front of the shop on Scalpay, Harris, is symbolic of the financial losses suffered by the community enterprise. Yesterday it closed its doors for good, which was, of course, bad for some the island's 320 residents. Perhaps too many of them have been going to the supermarkets in Stornoway or taking advantage of the delivery services coming over the bridge. However, the bistro that shares the building is not affected by the closure. The story is carried in Hebrides News.
