Reindeer parade and Christmas lights
Sir, I am contacting you with regard to the ‘ Love Oban’ annual reindeer parade and Christmas lights switchon celebrations which took place last Saturday November 21.
Through your columns I would like to thank all the people and organisations who helped with the event including Oban and Lorn Lions Club, Oban Rotary Club, Police Scotland, West Coast Tool and Plant Hire, Oban Electrics, Bank of Scotland, West Coast Motors, Kevin McGlynn and the Oban Community Singers, who were excellent as were Oban Pipe Band, Och Aye Events, not forgetting Ryan McGlynn and all the ABC staff who were involved.
More than 3,000 people came out to say hello and welcome Santa and his reindeer.
It was especially gratifying when Santa was saying ‘ cheerio’ that he asked for a ‘Love Oban’ sticker for his sleigh!
Thanks to everyone who was involved and who came along. Neil Mackay, Bid4 Oban
