Competition antics not so bonnie
A FEW Lochaber Times readers were left unable to cast their first votes in the Lochaber Times Bonnie Babies competition last week after the supplements with the voting coupon went missing from papers around Fort William. One mum contacted the Loch
aber Times asking for copies of the paper after she was unable to find copies with the inserts still included – despite trying the Coops in Caol and Corpach, and the BP petrol station.
She said: ‘It’s very disheartening. I know it’s a competition and everybody wants their baby to win, but it’s nice to be fair.’
Lynsay Rowsell, Caol Co-op team leader, said: ‘Our manager caught a customer with six or seven supplements and told them they couldn’t have them without buying the paper so those were put back in.
‘However, a few days later, when we counted the papers, we found between 25 and 30 had no supplements.’
