Leaflet launched at Mòd Loch Abar open night

The Oban Times - - News -

AN OPEN evening high­light­ing the ben­e­fits of Mòd Loch Abar 2017 was held on Mon­day Fe­bru­ary 6.

The event took place in Mòd Corner in the for­mer Clark’s shop on the High Street and in­cluded the launch of an in­for­ma­tion leaflet.

Dur­ing the evening there were pre­sen­ta­tions about what the Mòd is, the ben­e­fits it could bring to the area and lo­cal busi­nesses such as ac­com­mo­da­tion providers and how they can get in­volved.

Is­abel Camp­bell, Mòd Corner con­venor, said: ‘It was a very good evening and the or­gan­is­ing of the Mòd is go­ing well.

‘There were some new faces, but we could still do with more peo­ple get­ting in­volved.’

She also em­pha­sised the need for busi­nesses to re­alise the huge in­come po­ten­tial of the Mòd, say­ing it could bring in more than £ 3mil­lion to the area.

Is­abel added the com­mit­tee still needs vol­un­teer stew­ards – more than 100 will be re­quired to en­sure the smooth run­ning of the event – and a stew­ards’ con­venor.
