This year’s Lewis Christian Conference is due to take place in Stornoway from Friday 28th June through to Monday 1st July.

The Conference will be held in St Columba’s Church and the speaker is to be Dr Robert Smith Jr, from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, pictured above.

The Island Select U-13 & U-15 teams won their last match and now top the UK Athletics Youth Development North league, qualifying for the Scottish finals.

Stornoway Running and Athletics Club said on Facebook that they are “delighted for our fantastic youngsters who again upped the game with their performances. An amazing achievement all round!”

Former Chair of UNESCO Scotland, Malcolm Maclean, who lives in Uig, has challenged Historic Environment Scotland to update their information panel at the Calanais Stones.

He sees the wording on the panel as misleading to the 50,000+ visitors who make their way to Calanais each year and failing to do full justice to the importance of the site.

Calanais is older than Stonehenge and one of the largest, most northerly and most complex archaeological sites in the UK.
