A COF­FEE morn­ing in the Plock­ton Inn in March has raised more than £400 for the vil­lage play area.

Eighty-year- old Wil­liam Fraser re­ceived a pre­sen­ta­tion at the Kyle Free Church on April 2. The con­gre­ga­tion wished to thank Mr Fraser for all the work he does for the church in Kyle and Plock­ton.

On a cold but dry morn­ing, around 30 peo­ple at­tended the an­nual Easter Sun­day open air ser­vice in Plock­ton, where Rev Rod­die Rankin and Dave Mock­ett of­fi­ci­ated.

Res­i­dents en­joyed a per­for­mance from Skye folk singer Ella Munro and her band who played at Plock­ton Hall on Tues­day April 4 as part of their tour around Scot­land.

Dur­ing March in Plock­ton, there were four inches of rain, the same as in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. Only 10 dry days were recorded. The warm­est day in the vil­lage was 16°C and cold­est night was -1°C.

Work on a Plock­ton play­park can fi­nally get un­der way. At the group’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on Wednesday April 5, play­park com­mit­tee chair­woman Mar­lene MacLean said it was now in a po­si­tion to fi­nally start work. Of­fice bear­ers were re- elected and three new mem­bers joined the com­mit­tee.

Among re­cent deaths with Lochalsh con­nec­tions was Murdo MacLeod from Kyle, Ron Gille­spie Bal­macara, and John Gra­ham and Peter Beaton, who were both from Plock­ton.
