Stewards sought for Mod

The local organising committee for Mòd nan Eilean Siar 2016 is appealing for volunteers who would be willing to help out as stewards during the weeklong festival being held between the 14th - 22nd October. You do not need to sign up for the whole week, you may only be able to help for a half-day, and that would be equally welcome. A briefing meeting will be arranged to offer training for potential stewards.

Norman MacDonald, Chair of the Local Organising Committee said:

“The Mod, which is the premier Festival of Gaelic language and culture, was last held in the Western Isles in 2011 and attracted approximately 2,800 visitors and a further 2,500 residents attended competitions and concerts. A great deal of management and co-ordinating work is required to ensure that competitions and events run safely and smoothly, therefore we would ask anyone who feels they can give of their time during the week of the Mod to get in touch with us.”
