Youth group set about new restoration project


THE Bridge Youth and Community Group are about to begin their second restoration project after they impressively brought an old Massey Ferguson tractor back to life last year.

The group were very generously donated a boat, shown in the picture, which promises to be a challenge and a learning curve for the youths involved.

Restoration of the boat will progress on the same basis as the tractor did, acting as an opportunity for skills to be learnt and working in conjunction with a mentoring programme.

The mentoring programme involves people of various age groups, ranging from 20 years old right up to 70.

For more on the project see this week’s Stornoway Gazette, out now.
