Grinneabhat Community Project is offering a chance to remember loved ones and to support the development.

Urras Coimhearsnachd Bhràdhagair agus Àrnoil (UCBA), the Bragar and Arnol Community Trust, on the West Side of Lewis has introduced a fundraising initiative which will also ensure a lasting memorial to people with a connection to the area.

The projects for Lionel School's new football pitch and the Comunn Eachdraidh Nis expansion both received a welcome boost to their fundraising campaigns with the news that Charles Young of 7 Fivepenny will compete in the Great Scottish Run Half Marathon in Glasgow on the 29 September to raise funds on their behalf.

The funds raised will be divided equally between the two Ness projects.

Friday 2ndAugust saw the official opening of Bernera’s new community garden.

With a grant from the Postcode Lottery Trust, the area behind the Bernera Community Centre has been transformed in to a lovely green space, to be enjoyed by the whole community.
