Well done to GM3,4,5,6 and 7 pupils at Laxdale school.

The pupils were presented with their Callanish Awards for their time planting spring bulbs outside the Lews Castle. It was not the best of days for planting but they battled on.

It will be lovely to see all the different colours popping up and will be a nice treat for all the visitors to the Castle. Great work!
