What is it trying to do?
The Comann Eachdraidh exists to promote an active interest in the history, heritage and culture of the Barvas and Brue area; to do this it will:
Wanted Urgently ... ££s, Members & $$s!
- bring together all individuals and bodies that share such
- collect, identify and preserve documents, photographs and
other material of historical value in the area for the benefit of
- organise exhibitions, displays, lectures and other
- co-operate with Universities, Colleges, Schools and others
interested in the work and aims of the Society;
- raise and hold funds towards the furtherance of these
Cha dèan sinn dad feumail gun airgead!! We are delighted that we already have over 90 members, but we would like many, many more! Of course we will apply to grant-giving bodies for assistance with the cost of getting the basic equipment needed, but we ourselves must raise money locally first.
The Comann Eachdraidh needs proper storage for papers and photos, a computer and printer, tape-recorders, camera and a place where the material can be kept and displayed for people to see, read and hear.
We need thousands of pounds! Is that possible? Can the people of Barvas and Brue, locals, emigrants, cousins and friends support a Comann Eachdraidh, as Bernera, Back, Ness, Point, Kinloch, Uig and other communities do? Ma tha, tha mi an dùil!
