“Did one artist do all this?”  Variations of this question were asked in An Lanntair’s main gallery throughout yesterday (Friday August 24th) evening as the new show ‘All That I Do’ began to allow people to explore the work of locally-based artist Tom Hickman.

Working from his home in North Tolsta, whatever the material, Tom follows his impulse to create which he says has never wavered since his childhood in the Mull of Kintyre.

The annual Lews Castle College UHI graduation and prize giving ceremony took place this afternoon (Friday August 23) at Martin’s Memorial Church in Stornoway.

The date has been set for the second of this summer’s Big Minch Swims, with swimmer Paul Finnegan set to embark on his attempt tomorrow evening (Saturday August 24th).

Harris councillor Paul, who works for Harris Voluntary Service, was due to be swimming alongside Minch king Colin Macleod in June, but a bad chest infection set back his training and he was then due in Gibraltar, where he was one of the coaches for the NatWest Island Games Team.
