Skaters roll into Ne­vis Cen­tre with Sis­ter Act

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

SIS­TER ACT is com­ing to Lochaber next week­end but with a bit of a dif­fer­ence as it will see the ‘nuns’ dance in roller skates.

The Lochaber Artis­tic Roller Skat­ing Club’s ‘show­time’ will take place in the Ne­vis Cen­tre on Satur­day night.

Frida Alexan­der, who has run the club for 30 years, de­scribed the dis­ci­pline as be­ing sim­i­lar to ice skat­ing and says the show is not only good fun but helps raise funds to al­low the club to take part in com­pe­ti­tions down south. She added: ‘ We have trav­elled to Amer­ica and Den­mark in the past.

‘More re­cently we just go to Eng­land but it still costs a lot of money, so the shows are a great way of help­ing us make that hap­pen.

‘The com­pe­ti­tions usu­ally take place in July when the schools are off so it would be great for us to go and show off the hard work.’

The show starts at 7.30pm and tick­ets are still avail­able.
