The annual long weekend of music, song and dance concluded yesterday with the Farwell Session in the Mermaid Inn.

One of the organisers of this year’s Scilly Folk Festival has said the event has “exceeded our expectations”. 

Highlights from this year’s Scilly Folk Festival included performances by La Fayette, the 3 Daft Monkeys, the Rough Island Band and the traditional Barn Dance. 

Friends of Isles of Scilly Transport have praised the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group's front-line staff. The community group, known as FRIST, said that employees display "remarkable loyalty" in the face of recent poor decision making by the company. 

The Isles of Scilly has a brand new art gallery. Jennie Trevithick and Hayden Simpson recently took over the Chandlery on St Mary’s, which they are hoping to open at the end of June.
