Community nurse Mo Griffi ths has picked up a
prescription for a long and happy retirement. The 59-yearold
from Taynuilt is the second generation of her family to
look after Oban’s health. Her mum Marie was a registered
staff nurse at the old West Highland Hospital in the town
and her father, Kenneth Lipp, was a well-known GP in the
town. Colleagues at Lorn Medical Centre had a party to
say farewell and good luck.
Oban Curling Club has ended a 55-year wait to be named
Argyll Province Champions. The last time the 176-year-old
club held the title was in 1963 and the club is now hoping
its success and the buzz from this year’s Winter Olympics
might give a boost to its current membership of just six.
