The Oban Times - - NEWS -

FORT Wil­liam’s Town Team raised £ 880 at a Mor­risons bag-pack­ing event.

Six­teen mem­bers of the com­mu­nity team helped cus­tomers pack their shop­ping be­tween 10am and 4pm on Sat­ur­day July 2.

Town team sec­re­tary Sue Keen said: ‘ We raised a mag­nif­i­cent £ 880.55, which is a huge boost to our funds.

‘We will put the money to­wards equip­ment, paint and plants that we need to keep the town look­ing the best we can.’

The team has also fin­ished plant­ing the sun­dial gar­den in the Pa­rade.

Vol­un­teers from the town team and staff from Tesco helped to get the patch com­pleted.

The sun­dial shaped gar­den was planted up with pink, red and white be­go­nias and gera­ni­ums, with help from vol­un­teers at Fort Wil­liam’s Gar­den Stop.

The Lochaber Royal Bri­tish Le­gion has also asked the team to plant six planters at the war me­mo­rial in the town, in the run up to judg­ing for the war me­mo­rial com­pe­ti­tion, which Ms Keen said ‘it would be great to win again’.
