The Uig Chessmen, found here on Traigh Uig in 1831, are returning to Uig for a single day on 13 September 2011. To mark the occasion, Uig Community Centre and the Comann Eachdraidh are raffling a very substantial Berserker, carved in solid oak by Stephen Hayward, who did the King on Traigh Uig and the enormous berserker outside the community centre. This fellow is 18″ tall and beautifully detailed – a bit big for most mantlepieces but a completely unique, one-off object suitable for guard duty in your house or garden.
Tickets are £1 per strip, available from the tearoom in the Community Centre any time up to and including Latha na Fir Tailisg. If you’d like to buy tickets by post (I suggest a minimum of 5 at a time) drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll sort you out.
The draw will be on 13 September and the winner will be announced here and on our Facebook page.
