Mull Highland Games 2019

Games Day is a big event in the Mull calendar, especially for those born and bred in Tobermory, as was proven this year when Donald McLeod travelled all the way from Brazil, where he is currently working, in order to be there. ‘Can’t miss Games Day’ he said – and why would you, when the day is such a colourful and lively expression of all things Scottish, with a healthy dose of sociability thrown in. Competitors and visitors alike often express their pleasure at the friendliness of Tobermory Games, as well as in the beautiful surroundings of Tobermory Golf Course... more in the full issue

Parking Charges - the Fight Goes On!

Legal challenge to TRO 201
The fight against the imposition of parking charges is not yet over. Although Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) 201 was passed by a majority vote of councillors, it may yet be possible to make a legal challenge.
The Community Councils of both Iona and Mull have jointly instructed lawyers to begin the effort. There is reason to believe that the process followed by the council was flawed, and that if challenged in court it may be overturned.
We have secured legal representation on a no-win-no-fee basis, but there are some costs which we will still have to bear, and there is the risk that ultimately we will lose our legal fight.
We therefore need your contributions to form a fighting fund to cover legal expenses. We’re seeking to raise £6,000 through a Crowdfunder campaign. Please contribute if you can! If you can spare £10, £20, or £50 it could turn out to be a good investment – your annual parking charges could be much more!
So please go along to or just search for Mull parking crowdfunder. Your islands need you!
