The weather may not be co-operating for the start of summer but community events are taking place every weekend here in the islands.

A fantastic exhibition has opened in An Lanntair focusing on the hugely popular Katie Morag books. See page 13 for a picture spread.

The annual Stornoway Half Marathon, 10K and Fun Run took place last weekend and attracted hundreds of runners for all events with a large contingent coming from the mainland to take part. See page 41 and 44 for full details.
