CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Morvern’s own Mrs Jean Robin­son, Locha­line, for re­ceiv­ing an award in the Queen’s Birthday Hon­our’s List last week.

Mrs Robin­son, or Jean as she is af­fec­tion­ately known lo­cally, was given the Bri­tish Em­pire Medal for ser­vices to the Morvern Com­mu­nity.

For al­most quar­ter of a cen­tury Jean has been the area’s un­of­fi­cial and un­paid vol­un­tary tourist in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer, agony-aunt, trip-ad­vi­sor, pier mis­tress and lit­ter gath­erer. Above all she has been the front counter and a ter­rific am­bas­sador for Morvern.

Lang may her lum reek and her gar­den flour­ish when she de­cides to re­tire. Turn to page 11.
