The local Western Isles Lottery Team is again holding competitions for the best Residential Lights displays in Barra and Vatersay.

Janet Paterson of Western Isles Lottery said, “It is the sixth successive year that the community Lottery has funded Festive Light displays and each year the groups managing the funds in every area have been able to expand their own displays, bringing festive cheer to what would otherwise be a very dark period of the year.

"The purpose of the residential competitions is to bring more coloured lighting and cheer to neighbourhoods around the Islands.”

The competition in Barra and Vatersay closes for entries on Sunday 18 December, entries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
