Estate Office Roof Repair

Lewis winters present more than an ordinary challenge to buildings, and to portable buildings in particular.

In order to maintain the estate office, and to keep it functioning in good order, it was decided to provide the roof with additional protection from the elements.

Fortunately, we had two local people on hand who were both competent and willing to carry out the work.

A big thank you to Donald R Morrison and Calum D Carmichael for their efforts which should (hopefully) see the office through many more years.

Donation of Chairs

We would like to thank the Rev. Paul Murray and the Congregation of Kinloch Free Church of Scotland for their very kind donation of chairs for the benefit of the community here.

The chairs will be used for our social gatherings and for any other local community events – we are hoping that the next event isn’t very far away!!

Playpark Development

Work on the new Playpark for the two villages is nearing completion, with the final elements in relation to signage, safety matting, grass seeding and so on currently being undertaken.

A formal opening day event is now planned for the 1st of September, which will include fun and entertainment for all ages and the whole community, including a barbeque, bouncy castle and more.

Given the effort being put in to getting both the park and the launch, Keose Glebe Estate have decided not to run its own ‘community day’ this summer, but will instead assist with, and contribute to, the Community Association event.

A great deal of local volunteer effort has gone in to getting the park up and running, and this will be a fantastic resource for the children in the community.

This effort is much appreciated.

Estate Maintenance

Running a (Community) estate takes some effort – administrative and practical; and each time we take on a new project, a little more of each is required. In addition, periodic maintenance is then necessary to ensure that everything is kept at the desired level and quality.

This means that, here in Keose Glebe, voluntary effort is required to, for example, cut grass, clean and bail boats, check moorings, paint walls, dig and replant flowerbeds, check trees, kill weeds, mend roads, clean offices; service vehicles and equipment, and more.
