It was in the hot summer of 1976 that the presses first rolled to produce the community newspaper of the Uists, Am Paipear
. It appears on the first Thursday of each month, is available in an online edition and is based in Airport Road, Balivanich, Benbecula. Here’s a way of keeping in touch with news in and around Howmore as well as keeping in touch with events in South Uist and points north. So it serves the vicinities of Berneray as well.
