A Happy New Year to all
A Happy New Year to all

Hogmanay looks set to be lively right across the islands with events expected to take place in several locations.

In Tarbert, the Harris Mutual Improvement Association is organising a New Year’s Dance at the Tarbert Community Centre featuring Catch 22 and Corina Macinnes.

The night will get underway at 11pm and tickets are available from Brownies shop in Tarbert. It is open to over 18s only.

If you are north of the Clisham you might want to make your way to Stornoway for some Hogmanay entertainment in An Lanntair and to catch the New Year’s Eve Fireworks in Bayhead.

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.
