Fireworks will mark the final day of 2013 in Stornoway as plans are set for an end of year celebration.
Stornoway Amenity Trust are organising a fireworks display on Bayhead on New Year’s Eve at 9pm with a street party running until 10:30pm.
Collection boxes are now set up in local shops and the Trust are hoping the public will support their efforts to put on a community event.
There will be music and dancing on the night as in previous years and it is hoped a good crowd will turn out to enjoy the festivities.
The Trust have so far received crucial funds from local businesses including A B Electronics; Duncan Mackay and Sons; Grillburger; I A \& C Maciver; Ivor Murray; Lewis Builders and Macmillan Engineering.
The Trust are very grateful to all businesses who have contributed so far and any other firms wishing to donate should contact Charlie on 07717816476 or Nellie on 703073.
Other island events are planned for Hogmanay including an event in An Lanntair with music from Willie Campbell and Friends on New Year’s Eve.
