CalMac Community Board welcomes the announcement to restrict ferry travel to those for whom travel is essential
The Independent CalMac Community Board very much welcome the announcement by the Government to restrict Ferry Travel to those for whom travel is essential. It is important we do not add extra pressure to the delivery of health and other services at this crucial time. The demographics of Our Islands demonstrate a significantly higher proportion of our population in the at risk categories. Let us collectively do all we can to protect them.
The Community Board would also like to put on record their appreciation for the already considerable efforts of our front line staff. All of us who travel on Ferries should recognise the extra pressure they are under and show support and understanding.
