Letter from the Editor, Susan Windram
Welcome to our first Oban Times and Lochaber Times Bonnie Babies Competition 2017 supplement. What a fantastic way to celebrate the start of spring 2017! Firstly, a massive thank you to all those who entered their little ones from across Argyll and Lochaber. We are overwhelmed by the number of entries and have thoroughly enjoyed looking through all the adorable photographs while putting this supplement together. Secondly, a big thank you to Tesco, Oban, for coming on board as our sponsor. The winner will receive a whopping £500 of Tesco vouchers. Just think, that could be your monthly family food shop covered or a chance to treat the family to toys, books and DVDs or even clothing and electrical goods. There will also be two runner-up prizes of £50 in Tesco vouchers each. The most difficult part is choosing the winner and that is where you, the reader, comes in. The Oban Times and Lochaber Times needs your help to tell us which babies and toddlers you think should win the title of bonniest baby. Readers will start by voting for their top 50 from this supplement. It will then go to top 30, top 20, top 10 and the winner will be revealed. To vote for your favourite, simply complete the coupon, remembering to provide the number that is stated on the child’s photograph and send it in. We are happy to accept multiple coupons at one time. Just remember to get them in by Friday April 14, 2017. Full instructions below. After the voting deadline, look out in future issues of The Oban Times and Lochaber Times to find out who made the top 50 when the voting starts again. We wish all entrants the very best of luck and we hope everyone has a very happy Easter.
