​*** APPEAL FOR STEWARDS ***

Published: 08 Sep 2016

With the start date of Mòd nan Eilean Siar 2016 a mere five weeks away, the local organising committee has been searching for willing volunteers who will help with stewarding duties during Mod week. The new Convenor of the Halls and Stewarding Committee, Iain MacArthur, who hails from Carloway, is optimistic about the challenges facing him and his committee in the few weeks that lie ahead.

As Iain explained:
“The role of the steward is crucial to the smooth running of this prestigious event and many are needed, in particular at the beginning of the week for the children’s competitions. With up to 30 venues being used at the same time, it is important that we have a healthy bank of enthusiastic and willing stewards. Being a steward is also an excellent way to get actively involved in Mòd nan Eilean Siar 2016 and soak up the fantastic atmosphere. We would welcome anybody who has an interest in the language, music and culture to come forward and offer their services”.

If you are interested in being a steward please contact An Comunn Gàidhealach on 01851 703487 and Peigi will pass your details to Iain MacArthur and the Halls & Stewarding Committee.
