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.

Making a Donation

Given the number of people and visitors using the moor road, and taking walks on the moor, we have been regularly asked if there is a way to make donations to the Estate for upkeep, maintenance and other purposes.

To that end, we have purchased and installed a donation box at the beginning of the moor road |(left hand side)

Please point all donors in that direction! All donations are now welcome!

Over recent months, we have seen an increased amount of vehicle traffic using the moor road. Some of these visitors are using the road at all hours of the day or night, and are not always following the speed restrictions that we have put in place. Continue reading “Moor Road Management”

Lucky2BHere Presentation

Following an Estate meeting, Alister Macdonald presented, on behalf of the Keose Glebe community, a cheque for £100 to Councillor Angus Morrison in support of the Lucky2BHere charity who have placed a  defibrillator in the village.

Having this valuable lifesaving equipment here is much appreciated, and we would like to thank both Angus and Lucky2BHere for the tireless work they have undertaken in fundraising, locating and maintaining defibrillators in many places across the islands.
