After just six months of collecting 5ps in mini jam
jars as part of the RNLI’s popular Betty’s Pots
initiative, Oban’s fundraisers have hit £1,000 with
help from the community and its seven collection
points at Atlantis Leisure, CGL Printers, Poppies
Garden Centre, The Little Potting Shed, M&S,
Costa Coffee, The Perle Hotel and Inveraray Castle.
Repair work to Oban Community Playpark has
fi nally started, with Lochgilp head-based civil
engineers George McNaughton and Son moving
in on Tuesday to dig into the initial groundwork.
Lyndsay Elliott, chairperson of the Friends of Oban
Community Playpark group, said: ‘It is a great relief
to all involved that the diggers are now on site.’
