Fond farewell to happy face be­hind good news store

The Oban Times - - News -

AN OBAN woman who al­ways de­liv­ered a good news ser­vice de­spite the head­lines has re­tired af­ter 27 years’ ser­vice.

Tina Cot­ton, who left Oban’s Albany Street newsagents last Fri­day, was show­ered with gifts from cus­tomers and col­leagues for her many years of cheery ser­vice.

Tina said: ‘I’ve got four grand­chil­dren with another on the way, so I’ll be on baby-sit­ting duty. I’m sad to be leav­ing and I will miss my cus­tomers ter­ri­bly. I’d like to thank them. They’ve been so kind.’

Owner, Michael Wright, said: ‘She’s been serv­ing fam­i­lies for gen­er­a­tions. Chil­dren who were three years old when Tina started are now 30 with kids of their own. She re­ally will be missed.’
