From the Ad­ver­tiser of yes­ter­year

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LEISURE -

In this week’s edi­tion you will read sto­ries about Girl Guides and Tar­bert Seafood Fes­ti­val.

If we look back over the years to past edi­tions of the Ar­gyll­shire Ad­ver­tiser, we find echoes of these same themes.

In our Oc­to­ber 23, 1998, edi­tion, we find the for­ma­tion of the Sec­ond Lochgilp­head Brown­ies fea­tured on the front page. The orig­i­nal photo cap­tion read: ‘Pic­tured en­joy­ing all the fun at the Lochgilp­head Com­mu­nity Cen­tre are the Sec­ond Lochgilp­head Brown­ies, girls aged be­tween seven and 10, who meet ev­ery Thurs­day at 6pm. They were formed a month ago when lead­ers Sylvia Fisher and Lorna McCal­lum were asked by Guide leader Phyl­lis An­gus, who thought the two had ‘the same en­ergy lev­els as the girls’.

Ten years ear­lier, our July 15, 1988, edi­tion cov­ered Tar­bert Seafood Fes­ti­val. On a sod­den Satur­day the vil­lage came alive with Tar­bert Ma­jorettes, Royal Navy divers ‘scream­ing around the har­bour in a Zo­diac’ and chil­dren groom­ing pets.
