Time moves quickly at the Rock­field Cen­tre

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

Time was mov­ing quickly at the Rock­field Cen­tre com­mu­nity char­ity shop last week when a grand­fa­ther sold a grand­fa­ther clock just min­utes af­ter it ar­rived.

The clock was sold by Kevin Mills, who re­tired to live in Oban, and who vol­un­teers at the char­ity shop each week.

He said: ‘I found the whole sit­u­a­tion re­ally amus­ing since this is the first and prob­a­bly only time I will ever be able to say that, as a grand­fa­ther, I had sold a grand­fa­ther clock.’

The new owner, Ali­son Ren­nie, said she is go­ing to re­store the clock and pur­chased it be­cause she ‘liked the look of it’.

While Oban res­i­dent Ali­son will carry out the work her­self, she said: ‘I will need to get lo­cal peo­ple who can do the wood­work and the glass.’
