Berneray Community Council has funded a brightly lit Christmas tree for the island, as the Comhairle are too stingy / bankrupt / focused on Lewis to the detriment of all the other islands, to fund Christmas decorations.
Andy Carr did a superb job on making the sleigh and getting it and the tree sorted out. Thanks also for Jim in his garage / shed, which provided the electricity for the tree when it was parked next to the Nurs'es Cottage. The tree is currently travelling around Berneray, and will appear in various locations over the next few weeks.
Here's a not very good picture of it:
And here's a short and also not very good video of it, twinkling away a few nights ago next to the Nurses Cottage.
A peaceful Christmas, and a healthy and prosperous 2009, to readers of this blog.
