The events schedule is hotting up as we move towards the end of the school year but sadly the weather is not following that trend.

It’s usually a sign of summer coming when the Mods get underway and last week the Uist Mod was held, and at the time of going to press, the Lewis Mod was taking place.

Despite the rain there was a good turnout for a Fun Day on Lews Castle Green last Saturday organised by Stornoway’s Martin’s Memorial Church (see page 8) and Stornoway Harbour was a busy place last Saturday morning with the Skiff Race taking place at Cuddy Point as part of the Port Authority’s 150th anniversary events (also page 8).

We’ve got a lovely story on page 11 about a wedding being held in the historic Uidh Church in Aignish - the first wedding to take place in living memory. (page 11).

Don’t miss our new columnist Rev Angus Morrison, Moderator of the Church of Scotland. See his first column on page 12 where he reflects on this year’s General Assembly and the decisions taken there.

We also go to a jam-packed round up of all the week’s sport with SRAC success; meet the Island Games Cycling team and all the action from the football league.
