BUY THE FABULOUS COIG! CD
STORY 106 — now the book!
In 2011 a competition was devised, based on the number
106: entrants had to write a short story containing exactly
106 words. We were overwhelmed by the response, receiving over 200 entries.
Prizes were awarded to the three stories judged to be best in each
Adult, 12-17 years, 11 years & under.
The competition was such a success, we decided to celebrate by printing a collection of 106 of the stories. The book is now in print and available to buy.
This beautifully presented little volume is on sale locally at Cornerstone, The Shop at the Pier, Hillbillies Bookstore, Gairloch Post Office, Loch Ewe Visitor Information Centre, Poolewe Stores and several other outlets.
The entertaining and sometimes thought-provoking stories, with excellent illustrations by local artists, come at a bargain price of just £3.80. Any profit from the book sales will be used to fund future competitions.
CD STILL AVAILABLE
The great new Tapadh Leibh CD featuring
a wide range of local performers, songs
and tunes is now available from the Loch
Ewe Area Group. It's packed full with over
70 minutes of great music from Wester
Ross and costs just £12. The proceeds
from sale are being split between the
Highland Hospice and Two Lochs Radio,
so as well as getting great music, you'll
be supporting two good causes. The CD
is available now in many local shops in
Two Lochs area, or you can email tapadhleibh@2LR.co.uk for more details.
In September 2010 we were pleased to be featured on Scottish TV's tea-time show The Hour.
The previous year we were visited by a crew from ZDF TV in Germany, and they put together a short TV film about 2LR for German viewers.
