Oban town cen­tre looks fab­u­lous

The Oban Times - - LETTERS -

Sir, There is a pop­u­lar say­ing that com­plaints are al­ways heard but com­pli­ments are sel­dom voiced.

I must say well done to all in­volved with the re­cent im­prove­ments in Oban town cen­tre. We never thought that the pave­ments would be fin­ished but look at them now. They are re­ally fan­tas­tic.

The seat­ing around the town is much more than re­quired, and the qual­ity of the benches is so good and the side ta­bles are a bril­liant ad­di­tion.

The coloured light­ing around the bay is stun­ning. Just now, when the mulit- coloured lights are on and re­flected in the wa­ter, it looks amaz­ing. McCaig’s Tower is spec­tac­u­lar at night and the light­ing on Stafford Street is sim­ply beau­ti­ful. Also, the pedes­tri­anised area on Stafford Street is the ic­ing on the cake.

I will never for­get the sight at Mod time, in a heat­wave, with ev­ery­one sit­ting (crammed in) en­joy­ing their ice- cream cones and the scenery.

Then, head­ing out of Oban, we have the gen­tle­man who beavers away clear­ing the pave­ment edges and lift­ing rub­bish. What a dif­fer­ence he is mak­ing, so thank you to him. At the mo­ment, the scrub and trees at the sides of the road are be­ing cleared, which is also a mas­sive im­prove­ment, and it is be­ing done so neatly and quickly.

I, for one, am so grate­ful to live in such as beau­ti­ful part of Scot­land, so well done to ev­ery­one in­volved.

Anne Fer­gu­son, Oban.
