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.
