Ideal Homes Show Proves Popular

Shetland's Ideal Homes show, which is held every two years, drew in large numbers of folk seeking inspiration or advice.

The show is organised by the Shetland Rotary Club and features exhibits from a wide range of local firms. Visitors can look at ranges of furniture, find out about the latest technology or talk to local architects about getting their new home designed to meet all the family's needs.

This year's show, held in Lerwick's spacious Clickimin Centre, was attended by around 2,300 people over a Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday, meaning that around 10% of the islands" population included it in their weekend. The proceeds go to local charities and voluntary groups and, this year, they're set to benefit by around £15,000.
