Field owner saves the day for Ap­pin show

The Oban Times - - Letters - Ross Allward, honorary trea­surer.

Sir, Fur­ther to your re­port on the Ap­pin Show in last week’s Oban Times, may I, on be­half of the show com­mit­tee, ex­press our grate­ful thanks to Alastair Colthart of Tyn­rib­bie.

He al­lowed us the use of his field at short no­tice fol­low­ing the as­sess­ment on the Sun­day prior to the show that our usual field, kindly pro­vided by Ron­nie and Mary MacColl at Stalker Croft for many years, was too wa­ter­logged to be used this year.

With­out the al­ter­na­tive field be­ing made avail­able, the show would have had to be can­celled.

Our thanks also go to his nephew, Alas­dair Colthart, who cleared the filed of its silage crop at short no­tice.
