Fire­works were bet­ter than ever

I hope ev­ery­one en­joyed the fire­works as much as I did.

Fire Worx Scot­land of In­verurie out­did them­selves this year and it was great to have stalls in Sta­tion Square with lots of lovely hot food, Oban and Lorn Lions fundrais­ing and Scot­tish Sea Farms (SSF) hand­ing out re­us­able bam­boo cups. SSF also de­serve a big vote of thanks for the fund­ing which made this year’s dis­play big­ger and bet­ter.

Have a wee look on our LoveOban Face­book page and you can see some of the amaz­ing pho­tos – and thanks to ev­ery­one who posted pho­tos.

We’re com­ing up for Re­mem­brance Day on Sun­day, which makes it quite spe­cial es­pe­cially with this be­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of the end of WWI.

This year there will be a con­cert in St Columba’s Cathe­dral at 4pm which will also have an ex­po­si­tion cel­e­brat­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of Poland re­gain­ing in­de­pen­dence.

There’s also quite a lot hap­pen­ing in the town on Fri­day and Satur­day, with Can­cer Re­search Oban hold­ing a quiz in the Ma­sonic Hall on Fri­day night and on Satur­day Oban Pipe Band are hav­ing a soup lunch in the Band Hall to raise funds for the Beat­son Can­cer Char­ity.

If you’re a mu­sic lover, Char­lie Lands­bor­ough is in the Cor­ran Halls on Fri­day, and not for­get­ting our own Phoenix Cin­ema which has lots of good things on at the mo­ment, in­clud­ing Bo­hemian Rhap­sody and A Star Is Born.

Dunol­lie also has lots to of­fer at the mo­ment. If you’ve never vis­ited, now is the time to book A Day at Dunol­lie to find out all about the MacDougalls and, if you have chil­dren un­der five, then the Ex­plore Out­door Club is for you but re­mem­ber your wellies and hats for both th­ese days out.

Last week’s pho­to­graph was of the wa­ter treat­ment plant next to the Cor­ran Halls. This week’s is on Ge­orge Street but you’ll only spot it if you look up a bit.
