Gen­er­ous firm an­swers church’s prayers

The Oban Times - - Review - 26_t51stco nans2

ST CO­NAN’S Kirk mem­bers had their prayers an­swered thanks to the gen­eros­ity of an Ar­gyll elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing com­pany and Friends of St Co­nan’s Kirk ac­tion group.

Fol­low­ing re­ports in The Oban Times about thefts from the build­ing, Ken­neth Fer­gu­son from Con­nel de­cided to step in and help by fit­ting CCTV cam­eras, which were match funded by the Friends of St Co­nan’s Kirk, and out­side lights on the build­ing.

Last year, in three sep­a­rate in­ci­dents, or­nate and unique lo­cally-styled lead from the clois­ter area of the church, val­ued at £45,000, was stolen.

A Po­lice Scot­land spokesman said they were fol­low­ing a def­i­nite line of en­quiry into the theft of the lead.
