It is now nearly two years since Eilidh MacLeod from Barra lost her life in the Manchester Arena attack.

The group Skipinnish are fundraising once again for the Eilidh MacLeod Memorial Trust to help to raise money for the building of a permanent memorial to Eilidh on Barra.

Western Isles residents are being asked to take part in a local study being undertaken on ‘The Impact on quality of life since the diagnosis of Lyme disease’.

The study is being completed by NHSWI Health Protection and Screening Nurse Specialist Isabell Macinnes as part of a Master’s degree in Infection Prevention and Control.
