An event that took place 50 years ago will be recreated this Thursday – and you are invited to join in!

In 1969, Stornoway Primary school pupils and staff walked from Matheson Hall to the new school on Jamieson Drive. That iconic walk will be re-enacted on Thursday 28 November at 10am.

Donalda Riddell of Stornoway Primary said: "The children from our school will start the walk from Matheson Hall at 10am.

"We are looking for members of the public who did the walk originally – the first pupils and staff who came to the new Stornoway Primary school – to help recreate what they did 50 years ago.

"We currently have around 500 pupils plus staff who will be taking part in the walk – along with pipers from The Nicolson Institute.

"We have had a few members of the public get in touch and say they are excited to join but anyone else who wants to take part is welcome."

The event will be followed by a sing-song and refreshments at the present primary school.
