Mòd ladies cooking up funds

The Ladies Committee of Mòd nan Eilean Siar 2011 have come up with a tasty way of raising funds for October’s Gaelic showcase – a Mòd cook book.

And they are now appealing for help with recipe suggestions. As a result, they would appreciate any recipes that are favourites - home baking perhaps being a Mòd speciality!  All recipes will be gratefully received; starters, mains, puddings as well as baking and so on.

The Ladies Committee would like to receive all submissions by the end of June.  Recipes can be e-mailed to Moira Maclean or Christine Morrison at the following e-mail addresses: moira.maclean@btinternet.com or cmmorrison@btinternet.com

Meanwhile, Barvas and Brue Community Centre is the venue for the latest Mod fund-raising ceilidh on Friday evening.

A whole host of island talent will be performing and will include performances from piper Catriona MacKay, Iain MacKay, Margaret Mcleman, Murdigan MacDonald, Lauren Matheson, Còisir Sgir’ a’ Bhac and folk group performances from Stornoway Primary and Cross Primary School. The dance music will be provided by Oidhche Chiadain and as well as a raffle there will be a bar. 

Tickets are available from An Comunn Office and they cost £7 and £5 or alternatively payment can be made at the door on the evening. For more information contact An Comunn Gàidhealach Office on 01851 703487.
