Oban hub in line for award
THE ROCKFIELD Centre in Oban has been short-listed for a Rural Innovaters Award.
Run by the Scottish Rural Parliament (Parlamaid Dhuthchail na h-Alba), the award is for a project, person or organisation which is improving life in rural communities by tackling a topic that will improve the community and its surrounding area. A huge range of exciting projects were nominated for this award in the ‘Land’ category.
The Rockfield Centre is short listed alongside Tomintoul and Glenlivet Rural Regeneration estate and Ulva Ferry Housing Partnership.
Oban Communities Trust (OCT) which is behind The Rockfield Centre, describes the centre as offering sustainable activity that supports not just the site but the whole area.
OCT chairman Gordon McNab said: ‘ We are delighted to have been short-listed for this national award which recognises The Rockfield Centre will provide opportunities for everyone to learn, entertain, grow and socialise in a ‘hub’ identified by the community as required not just for this generation, but for many generations to come.
‘This is a fantastic opportunity for the centre to gain national recognition. Please vote for us.’ Voting is via the following link www. scottishruralparliament.org.uk
