The Oban Times - - DISTRICTS -

PREPA­RA­TIONS are well un­der way for the Ard­chat­tan fete on Sun­day July 30 be­tween noon and 4pm.

Ard­chat­tan Pri­ory is the set­ting for the an­nual com­mu­nity event and this year the Beavers and Cubs will be as­sist­ing with the smooth run­ning of the day.

This is an im­por­tant fundrais­ing event for the lo­cal Guide and Scout groups, along with Scot­land’s Gar­den Scheme and other lo­cal char­i­ties. There is some­thing for ev­ery­one with a se­lec­tion of games and sports for chil­dren of all ages.

Pop­u­lar soup lunches will be served from noon un­til 1.45pm and de­li­cious home­bak­ing with tea from 2.15pm to 4pm.

Vol­un­teers and lo­cal bak­ers give gen­er­ously to this event and last year more than £ 3,000 was raised.

This is a great fam­ily day out. Ev­ery­one is wel­come and ad­mis­sion is £4 with chil­dren un­der-15 ad­mit­ted free.

IN AN ef­fort to cur­tail the spread of Ja­panese knotweed along the Bon­awe Road, some spray­ing on the in­va­sive plant has been un­der­taken. The ar­eas sprayed are clearly marked off with red and white tape and peo­ple are ad­vised to avoid con­tact with these ar­eas.
