WESTERN ISLES LOTTERY MAKES NEW PRESENTATION
Western Isles Lifestyle Lottery (W.I.L.L) has made its latest presentation for £2,128.80 to John N Macleod (known as ‘Corrags’), Malina Morrison and Jonathan Smith of the Westside Agricultural Show Committee.
The funds were the proceeds raised from Lottery ticket sales from Supporters in the Ness & Westside Area.
This follows funding already received in Area 2 by Eoropie Playpark and Carloway Community Centre, making a total of £5,075 distributed to date.
The welcome funding helped the landscaping of an area of land beside the Barvas Community Hall to relocate their annual Show to a more suitable site. The new site will also be available for any local events to take place as well as additional parking facilities. They were also able to purchase a purpose-built Marquee to ensure future Shows go ahead regardless of adverse weather conditions.
"Corrags" sincerely thanked the Lottery for supporting them and emphasised how much value it was to the Community. More information can be found on the internet at www.westernisleslottery.co.uk.
