We had great fun at the Stornoway Thespians Panto – Beauty and the Beast – this morning, with a great lunch at An Lanntair Cafe Bar afterwards.
Mike did a fab job on the tech desk with lots of lighting and smoke effects….even some spooky mirrors!
Thanks to everyone who came along, supported, performed, ‘teched’ and made and served our lovely dinner.
It was incredibly moving to see the community gathered together at Christmas, young and older alike. I feel very festive now!
The office at An Lanntair is being taken over by quilts, cushions and bags today, in preparation for the Quilter in Residence exhibition on Monday.
Come along to An Lanntair’s Mezzanine Gallery at 1.30pm on Monday 12th December for drinks and nibbles, to celebrate this wonderful project and all of the the incredibly personal works created for wonderful people attending Alzheimer Scotland’s Solas Day Centre.
What a brilliant and informative day at the Upstream Conference at Edinburgh Festival Theatre! Great catching up with the Life Changes Trust team and Paul from DEEP too!
I thought that today’s session would be the last, working with people attending Alzheimer Scotland’s Solas Day Centre. Chris Hammacott has been Quilter in residence for November, which extended into December.
Service Manager Marion MacInnes extended the residency into January with further funds, so that more people could enjoy a personal quilted piece. Wonderful news!
Monday 12th December at 1.30pm sees the exhibition of the work so far open at An Lanntair’s Mezzanine Gallery, with drinks and nibbles.
Gorgeous sunrise today. It didn’t matter that it was minus 2…..

We feature quite heavily in this report, which is wonderful, and which shares the legal and human rights based framework to underpin the work we are doing.
