Want to have your say on Raasay events?

Head along to two drop in sessions at the community hall to discuss various arts events to be held throughout the year.

Whether the events include theatre, concerts, dances, mini festivals, exhibitions, talks, workshops, courses, murder mysteries or something completely different, everyone will have the chance to have their say on upcoming events.  

It is hoped to open the hall up throughout July and August for locals and visitors alike with the Pop Up Cafe and refreshments running alongside weekly workshops, demonstrations and exhibitions of local crafters and artists.

Call in to the hall (upper landing) for refreshments and cake on Friday 1 or Saturday 2 Feb and share your thoughts on what you'd like to attend or what skills you'd like to share!

Two NHS video-consultation services have been planned for Raasay and Kyle of Lochalsh.

The Near Me feature will be installed in healthcare facilities across the Highlands to ensure everyone as equitable access to the service.

As well as the staffed clinics being put in place in four of the board’s Community Hospitals, patients can now use dedicated unstaffed rooms in seven different locations across the region - with another eight to follow soon. 

The board ultimately plans that most patients will use the NHS Near Me web-based platform to attend out-patient appointments from their own homes using video devices on their own computers, smartphones or tablets.

The unstaffed rooms with easy-to-use computer equipment for NHS Near Me have been set up to ensure patients who can’t connect from home are not excluded.

Yvonne White, a crofter from Kingsburgh, has been appointed to lead the Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF).

At a board and council meeting held in Inverness last Friday January 18th), two new vice-chairs were also nominated and approved.
