The Garrison in Millport put on an emergency soup kitchen during last week's 60 hour power cut.

Stirring into action ... Millport volunteers helped embattled residents following the power cut.

Millport folks were certainly tested by the lengthy power cut following last Tuesday's storm.

Electricity did not come back on until Thursday evening. The Garrison Cafe was one of the places which managed to provide hot drinks for locals during the blackout.

Islanders used emergency generators, while Millport Fire Brigade also had to provide lighting to allow the Cal Mac ferry to berth at the Cumbrae Slip.

    As distressing as it must have been (and having lived in an area of USA which has seen hurricanes,tornados,ice storms etc and therefore many power outages,some of which have lasted up to two weeks, I know first hand the challenges we face without electricity) the positive that comes out of these disasters is the coming together as a community . There is nothing more meaningful than serving and helping others and it is wonderful to see the smile on this lady's face as she cooks up soup for the community of Millport:)
