Our Committee has been overwhelmed by the congratulations received from all quarters on the excellent Mòd Lochabair 2007 and its Fringe.  This success simply would not have been possible without the backing of a great number of people.

 We had to raise funds to meet our responsibilities both in the Mod and the Fringe, and we had to pay £20,000 to An Comunn Gàidhealach too.  With help from the community, businesses and the public bodies we have managed this and I write to thank everyone for their support.  

A huge amount of voluntary effort and help in kind has gone into the Mod over the past two years, from supporters across the Highlands and elsewhere in Scotland. The stewards and everyone who worked tirelessly during the Mod week saw the reward from their efforts.

 We have had a very good working relationship with An Comunn Gàidhealach, especially Murdo Morrison, Mod Promotion Officer.  

Many of your readers will be aware of the Traditional Music Awards and I am very pleased to say that the Mod has been nominated in the ‘Event of the Year’ category.  There will now be open public voting and, with your help again, this is something that we really could achieve!   Voting has to be complete by 23rd November and can be done on line or by downloading a form from www.handsupfortrad.co.uk. The Awards Ceremony will be in Fort William on 1st December - wouldn’t it be great to have a ‘home win’! 

** We won - thanks to all **

 

Finally, in fronting the Mod, it has been my grateful privilege to have enjoyed solid support from everyone, something I will never forget.

 Is mise le meas,
