Here she offers her take on the job so far: Over recent years Bressay has experienced the ongoing challenges of declining and ageing population, alongside remoteness from the market, reducing transport capacity and logistics, high cost of living and limited service provision.

In late 2013, Bressay residents formed a steering group to see what they could do to reverse decline on the island.

The island is linked to Bressay by a seasonal ferry service, run by the wildlife wardens using an inflatable boat.

Attractions on Noss include a visitor centre, the Pony Pund built to breed Shetland ponies, the Holm of Noss rock and the Noup cliff.

It is run by a volunteer committee of five directors, who are committed to working in partnership with other key organisations on the island such as the community council, hall committee and boating club, to develop community resources and tourism facilities on the island.

Priorities from the plan include: BD ltd operates a monthly bulky waste removal service, an annual clear up of roadsides and a quarterly community newsletter.

They organise regular fundraising events and have produced walk leaflets and a geocache trail.

Following successful funding bids to Awards for All, SIC and the Climate Challenge Fund, in December 2015 BD ltd took on the lease of the former Bressay Primary School with the aim of securing the building for the community and providing facilities including a café on the island.
