Hoy becomes Hoy and Walls

By popular request the area formerly known as Hoy in our Area categories has been changed to Hoy and Walls. I hope this meets the approval of the folk from Waas.

You could do that in the 60s appparently! Jim Eunson has posted a series of pictures from a scrapbook detailing this operation, and the first half have been uploaded to the public area of the site today. Come back tomorrow for the rest of these fascinating pictures!

I'm delving into pictures that have been bulk uploaded in the past, that I've held back to avoid swamping you with images that are similar all at once. They don't show up in the thumbnails below, which is strictly chronological by the date the pictures were submitted - so you might not see them. But you will if you use the Latest Additions button.
Good news...

...for me at least. The beast that is the Orkneycommunities Charity Calendar is almost slain, and there is time to do all the things that I should have been doing, but haven't.

The pictures are picked, additional text has been written, and the poor folk at The Orcadian have many pages of obsessive instructions as to how it all goes together. 11 businesses have been cajoled to take out advertising to help underwrite the production costs.

So all that remains to do is to sell 1500 of them.

Any help is greatly appreciated- if your group or shop can sell them give me a shout. If you want to take up the remaining advertising space email me RIGHT NOW on [email protected]. It's £100 for 160 x 20 full-colour action-packed millimeters in the publication of the year. Can you afford not to?

In related breaking news, we are planning to launch the calendar at a 'social evening' for picture contributors, some time before the County Show. Cancel your holidays and leave the car at home, that's all I'm saying...
