ACTION PACKED NOVEMBER
The excitement of Christmas and all that brings with it may be just
around the corner, but this month is certainly not short on action.
Hallowe’en may just be over and Guy Fawkes Night is on the way. Full
of noise and colour (and a little care – 15). Boxing’s top young talent
take the ring in the Nevis Centre on November 2, with not only local
rounds, but also a series of Scotland v England international bouts
(p8). This is followed on the 16th by the Mark Haldenby Strongman
Challenge, again with multi-country line-up plus lots of family fun
(p29). What does the future hold? Well, who can say, but Fort William
2040 is stacking up things local people want to see happening (p20).
Lots to do (and read) this month. A good November to you. Iain
