Praise for un­sung hero of the road

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, Hav­ing writ­ten in Fe­bru­ary on the sub­ject of lit­ter, I couldn’t agree more with the let­ter from Ni­cola Holt ( The

Oban Times, April 13) about lit­ter and the im­pres­sion it gives to vis­i­tors.

How­ever, my rea­son for writ­ing this time is to say a huge thank you to the man who col­lects lit­ter and tends the verges, prac­ti­cally on a daily ba­sis and in all weath­ers, be­tween Oban and the Half­way House fill­ing sta­tion.

He has made such a dif­fer­ence to that part of the ap­proach into Oban. In ex­press­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion for his ef­forts, I know I speak on be­half of oth­ers.

It’s just a shame some ir­re­spon­si­ble peo­ple con­tinue to throw lit­ter out of their ve­hi­cles on this stretch and else­where. Shirley M Scott, Saligo, North Con­nel.
