Re­turn to nor­mal­ity

The Oban Times - - DISTRICT NEWS -

At risk of paint­ing my­self as a fes­tive sea­son mis­er­ab­list, I’m glad to re­turn to some­thing re­sem­bling nor­mal­ity fol­low­ing the hol­i­day pe­riod.

While I am, in fact, a great fan of Christ­mas, I’m al­ways rather pleased when it’s all done and dusted, the dec­o­ra­tions are down and the tree put away for an­other year.

It has been a bril­liant win­ter break, with count­less par­ties and chil­dren’s shows, Oban look­ing very fes­tive with its dec­o­rated win­dows at a large num­ber of busi­nesses and a splen­did panto in the Cor­ran Halls. Top marks go to those in­volved in or­gan­is­ing the nu­mer­ous events.

Per­haps the big­gest vote of thanks, how­ever, should go to Lor­raine MacCormick and her team at Hope Kitchen who turned out on Christ­mas Day to pro­vide a fan­tas­tic din­ner for the less for­tu­nate among us.
