Police Scotland are hoping to attract Skye businesses to a special "Meet the Buyer" event to be staged next month.

The Preliminary Supplier Engagement,one of a series being held across a few geographical areas in Scotland, is part of their research into deciding the best way forward for a new, upcoming tender for joinery and locksmith services in relation to boarding up premises in the Highlands and Islands.

As a result they are inviting any suppliers that are interested in participating, to come along to informal drop in session which will be staged on Friday 2 September between 1pm-4.30pm. It will take place at Portree Police Station.

A spokesperson said: "At the event there will be an opportunity to speak to representatives from Police Scotland, the Supplier Development Programme and Business Gateway.  There will also be some advice and support available to assist you in public sector tendering.

"We look forward to meeting you at our drop in session."
