Hill Walkers to loose Weather Service

Quote HillyBilly - Neeps:

Shame it is not well advertised though Wink

Do not let this valuable source of info for hill lovers, users and residents be turned into yet another vague and completely irrelevant 'service' by the incredibly inaccurate Met Office.

Idea Write to Patricia Ferguson MSP
Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport
The Scottish Parliament
Edinburgh
EH99 1SP

Crikey, I had no idea it was under threat. I've dropped them a line in support, for what it's worth.
I know it's still running at the mo', have there been any updates?

The Galloway operation will receive 36,000 a year, over three years. "

That should keep the hillwalkers happy for a wee while.
Thanks for the info.
