Dear Mr. Dey,
I want to let you know how bitterly disappointed, the group of people waiting in the rain at the Ormidale Pavilion were, that you chose to creep in by the back door and avoid us.
What were you afraid of?
We were just a fairly elderly but well behaved group representing everyone who is dissatisfied by the current ferry service. We would not have held you up for long and only wanted a few minutes of your time.
Was that too much to ask?
I hope you read the paper you were given, detailing some of our concerns. I will never know if you did or not, but if not, it adds to the feeling that in this so called democracy the normal people are not being consulted but are being kept in the dark.
It would be good to hear from you personally about your plans for improving the ferry service, but I expect that is too much to ask !!
Margaret. Bryce. Brodick, Arran resident.
The current state of our lifeline ferry service shows it is not fit for purpose in terms of reliability, resilience and infrastructure. The Arran Ferry Action Group is a new and fully representative lobbying group, set up to represent Arran interests in demanding service improvements and accountability in future investment decisions.
