Futher Information

A Little bit of Background

Dursey suffers from a lack of electricity to the whole island and no public water supply. In the summer water can be scarce.

The Cable car which brings in all materials can only cope with people and bags of cement & fertilisers etc. Making bulk deliveries to the island expensive.
