Welcome to the April issue of West Coast Review!
It won’t be long until the Easter break is upon us, and whether this means
a quick long weekend for you, or a whole fortnight with the children off
school, there is plenty going on in and around Oban to make the season
enjoyable. Our What’s On Guide can help you decide how to keep busy.
Warmer weather means that this is the time of year when many visitors
and locals head for the hills, and hiking and climbing are a wonderful
way to experience the drama of our incredible landscape. The few who
get into diffi culty on Argyll’s mountains, can count on the support of our
dedicated Mountain Rescue team. This month’s Tea Break is a special
focus on the job the Mountain Rescue team do – though we should point
that they are volunteers.
Just over a year ago, Oban Hospice opened the Dove Centre, its base on
Stevenson Street. Our Community Profi le looks at what’s been happening
since the move and fi nds out about how the services the centre offers are
making a difference to the community.
The West Coast Review team love celebrating your activities and
achievements. If you have a story that you would like to tell, or you
want to fi ll us in about your event, project or campaign, please get in
touch and share your news.
