An event involving “Concerned Christians Meeting for Prayer” has taken place again in Stornoway and a further such event is now planned.

On Friday August 16th a number of Christians came together for the second such meeting in the APC church in Keith Street, Stornoway. 

A broken-down refuse truck is to be recovered by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar on the road from Tarbert to Scalpay this morning (Tuesday August 20th).

The work to move the truck means the road will be closed for an indefinite period from 10am, while cranes are brought in to lift the vehicle from the verge where it is currently stuck.

Fire stations throughout Lewis and Harris will be open for all on Saturday (August 24th), as Fire Scotland makes a bid for new recruits to the service.

Fire stations in Stornoway, Ness, Shawbost, Great Bernera, South Lochs, Tarbert, Scalpay and Benbecula will all have their doors wide open between noon and 4pm with a host of come-and-try opportunities for young and old.
