Con­nel surgery cof­fee shop back in busi­ness

The Oban Times - - Districts -

CON­NEL surgery’s cof­fee shop is open for busi­ness again af­ter a re­fur­bish­ment.

The cof­fee shop, which has been in op­er­a­tion since 1999, is run by 24 vol­un­teers, with all prof­its do­nated to a char­i­ta­ble trust run by Taynuilt Med­i­cal Prac­tice, which makes grants to lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The up­grade was car­ried out by lo­cal joiner Richard Ber­gant. All the units were bought from How­dens in Oban which, said one vol­un­teer, Ann Colthart, ‘ were most help­ful with the plan­ning and de­sign of the new lay­out’.

She added: ‘We hope peo­ple will come in to see the new lay­out and en­joy the friendly ser­vice of­fered by our helpers.’

The cof­fee shop is open Mon­day to Fri­day from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Ev­ery­one is wel­come, not just those peo­ple vis­it­ing the surgery.
