Campbeltown Courier - - VIEWPOINT -

Car­ni­val dis­ap­point­ment

WHAT a beau­ti­ful day Satur­day was for a car­ni­val pa­rade.

But, alas, what a lam­en­ta­ble turnout. Or­gan­iser Jack McKin­ven did his best, but was let down by last-minute with­drawals by sev­eral peo­ple who had promised their sup­port.

It was a pity, too, that the pipe band was un­able to turn out.

The most un­for­tu­nate thing is that the town had plenty of vis­i­tors, who will be telling their friends that was the best Camp­bel­town could do.

It seems that ev­ery­one wants en­ter­tain­ment

but few are pre­pared to help pro­vide it.

The show was saved by the chil­dren, Messrs Cru­den, the Rex Cin­ema, the YFC and a few who helped tremen­dously.
