Last Saturday (8 December) Kyle of Lochalsh RNLI hosted their annual Santa’s Grotto raising just over £1000!

Local families got into the Christmas spirit, many donning their Christmas Jumpers, to visit Santa at Kyle lifeboat Station. Throughout the day there was a steady queue of children waiting to visit Santa and get their picture taken with him, whilst the tea, coffee and home baking was in high demand as people tried to warm up. There was also an opportunity for some Christmas shopping from the table sale, whilst the children had the chance to post their Christmas letters to Santa at the North Pole.

A Kyle RNLI spokesperson said: ‘We would like to thank everyone who helped make it such a success.  We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the year and we hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’.

A website for Gaelic teachers to share classroom resources has been created by Stòrlann Nàiseanta na Gàidhlig, the Gaelic educational resources organisation.

The website –– is a straightforward facility where teachers can pool their resources, to save time and effort. Material can be uploaded and downloaded and teachers are being urged to share their resources with the site, so they can then be made available to others.
