Time to get dressed for Armed Forces Day

Argyllshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

SHOP and other busi­nesses in Lochgilp­head have been re­minded of their chance to add to the spec­ta­cle of Lochgilp­head Armed Forces Day.

The an­nual spec­tac­u­lar, or­gan­ised to pay trib­ute to the work and sac­ri­fice of the armed forces past and present, is all set to be held on June 16.

Colour­ful

But a big part of this colour­ful oc­ca­sion is the win­dow com­pe­ti­tion ar­ranged each year by the Armed Forces Day com­mit­tee.

The over­all theme for any­one cre­at­ing win­dow dis­play this year is ‘100 years since the end of WWI’, and win­dows should be dressed by Mon­day June 4.

A hand­some trophy will be pre­sented to the win­ner, to be cho­sen by public vote. Mem­bers of the public can place their vote in a box to be placed in the Mail­box post of- fice and shop on Ar­gyll Street, Lochgilp­head, and this will be avail­able un­til Satur­day June 16 – then at the Armed Forces Day hos­pi­tal­ity tent there­after.

Con­tact

Any­one who wishes to take part in the win­dow dress­ing com­pe­ti­tion is asked to con­tact Armed Forces Day sec­re­tary Betty Rhod­ick at lochgilp­head armed­forces­day@ya­hoo.com or by call­ing 01546 602205.
