Winter festival will be a cracker
WE AT The Oban Times were approached recently by Pamela Lockhart, one of the organisers of the Oban Winter Festival, to ask if we could help to promote the events being planned.
We are, of course, more than happy to help spread the word about the many activities in the offing, and did so last week with a page lead story announcing many of the highlights of the festival, and again this week with an account of its first clootie dumpling competition, right.
The festival is in its sixth year and has quickly become one of the highlights of the calendar in Argyll – and rightly so.
The small team of people who work hard throughout the year to make sure the festival happens are dedicated to the task and deserve the gratitude of the town and surrounding communities.
The programme they have put together for this year will be a cracker. Of that, I have no doubt.
Full details will be published in The Oban Times in the coming weeks but anyone wishing to find out more can do so online at www.obanwinterfestival.com.
Keep the dates of November 18 to 27 clear in your diary to ensure you make the most of this excellent festival.
