In this week’s Stornoway Gazette we look at the RNLI summer launch figures which indicate a rise in shout outs for the volunteers lifesavers, and look into the HHP Fuel Poverty study which shows shocking levels of fuel poverty in the islands.
Also in this week’s Gazette is a massive success story for the Lewis Pipe Band who have been promoted yet again and in our monthly Gaelic page read about the new directors appointed at Comunn na Gàidhlig.
Also featured in this week’s Gazette is a poisonous fish which was caught on a Tolsta beach, the second within just one week, and the heart warming story of an Afghan rescue dog who now has a new life in Gress.
The entertainment pages this week include an interview with one the islands’ rising stars, Eleanor Nicolson from Lewis, who is already becoming an Internet sensation plus take a look at last week’s Harris Mountain Festival.
And don’t miss the Lewis and Harris Football Review to find out who came out on top during this year’s football season and a report from the third Stornoway Tri-Club invitational athletics match.
