Win­ter fes­ti­val will be a cracker

The Oban Times - - News - MARTIN LAING mlaing@oban­

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.oban­win­ter­fes­ti­

Keep the dates of Novem­ber 18 to 27 clear in your diary to en­sure you make the most of this ex­cel­lent fes­ti­val.
