New Keose Glebe Drains in Full Flow

Following the initial clean-up and scrub clearance by village volunteers, and then the cleaning of the drains by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, it is now great to see the drains full of winter snow and rain!

Hopefully, now that this water has somewhere to go, we will have  much drier crofts and parks, and there will be less water getting on to the roads themselves.

There are lots more drains to fix and bring back into use, and hopefully some more of these will be tackled in the year ahead.

Thank you again to the volunteers involved, and to CnES for their work.
