The world's largest film festival for children and young people  kicks off in Scotland next month, taking place across the country between November 7-23.

Five screenings of the Into Film Festival will be taking place on the Isle of Skye, all free for schools and youth groups.

Aros Cinema will be the host for all events, which are:

A community information event will raise awareness about frauds.

Arranged by PC Graeme Low, working along with local banks, the event will enable them to pass on relevant advice.  

The event will take place at Tigh Na Sgire in Portree on Wednesday 31 October.

 

 

A call for individuals within the local business community to join SkyeConnect will take place during a special event next month.

Entitled "Skye On A Plate," the event  promises a full programme by top professionals from the Scotland Food and Drink sector linking with the local Hospitality Industry. Speakers will include John Murray, Highland Regional Manager of Scotland Food and Drink and Patrick Hughes, Head of Seafood Scotland. 

The Scottish Agricultural College (SAC Consulting), will present workshops for local horticulture and meat production enterprises wishing to scale-up, with advice on reaching new markets and adding value to local produce. The event offers opportunities for local food and drink producers to link up with local hospitality providers.

These strategic food goals for the future of the Tourism Industry both nationally and locally are linked directly with the Development of the Young Workforce, apprenticeships and further education courses. Local representatives, Lesley Hellon and Sarah

Bruce from West Highland College UHI, will describe how their work with local high schools in Portree and Plockton, plus local study centres, is aimed at encouraging young people (or those seeking a career change or returning to work) into further study, hands-on training and career development within the tourism industry.
