I thought it time to help raise awareness – like this blog is going to be read by anyone! – about The Sorting Room in Stromness (Orkney).
Just to put you at ease – anyone and everyone is welcome – it is a very friendly, informal and welcoming space, right in the centre of Stromness – conveniently opposite the Pier Arts Centre (what have they done with their website!?)
So, I suggest if you are in town you pop in for a browse, a blether and a bit of leather, some pottery or a mug of tea; – a place to get out of the rain, sit and eat your lunch, play and just chill out. This is for everyone, young and old.
The name – The Sorting Room – comes from it being the location of the old sorting room behind the Post Office – so, it is easy to find! Oh, and support the post office too – it is a wonderful old fashioned community saving venture that needs to be used to continue. So, just like you buy your food from small, family run stores in villages and buy petrol from little, independent retailers who struggle to keep services near the people – instead of all piling into cars to drive to supermarkets – yeah, be honest! – support your local stores!
The Sorting Room opened in May 2008. Look out for the red sign beside the post office and then the red door – inside is a surprise to delight in.
