AN online survey has been launched by the Western Isles Residents Forum among Hebridean Housing Partnership tenants on Barra to find out about the availability of fresh food locally.

The survey has already drawn a 32% return but to get a fuller picture organisers want to encourage all Barra residents to participate and fill in the short online questionnaire at:

They also ask those who have received the survey through the door, but have yet to return it, to please do so.

The online survey is also available to those living in South Uist to allow organisers to contrast and compare the two areas.

They will be publishing the results of the survey and reporting back to the Scottish Government and local representatives. A copy of this report will be available by emailing Kevin Paterson at

The survey will be open until the end of January with the report available shortly after.
