Monday 13 April

Easter Monday, and it is quite a nice day out here. Sunny (through a lot of high cloud) not a lot of wind and 11C. No great shakes on the temperature scale, but could be a lot worse.

Locally, there has been a lot of discussion on the location of the secondary school. The Nicolson Institute needs new premises, and the local authority has proposed a site near the old buildings. Only problem is that the Health & Safety Executive are not happy, as the site is in the vicinity of an LPG plant, which converts LPG into household gas for use in the town of Stornoway. A former safety officer for the local authority has written to outline what exactly happens if the LPG plant blows up. It doesn't make for pleasant reading.
