A gardeners dream

The Arran Horticultural Society hosts two shows every year, the summer show at the Community Theatre in Lamlash and the spring show in Brodick Hall, both highly anticipated and firm fixtures in the diaries of gardeners, bakers and children looking to boost their finances.

Gatherings for peace

Organised by the thriving Arran CND group, the event, on Sunday August 5, began with the ringing of the church bells, an address by the Rev Lily McKinnon and a two minute silence during which the horrors of nuclear warfare were remembered.

Mental health fundraiser

The fundraiser in aid of SAMH will take place at Lamlash Church Hall on Saturday August 18, between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

Night rescue for RNLI

At 10.29 pm on Monday August 12, the Arran RNLI crew assembled and launched the inshore lifeboat Rachel Hedderwick to come to the assistance of the vessel which had suffered dual engine failure and was adrift.
