Organisers behind Oban’s Winter Festival have been rallying recruits to help with this year’s event.

The small team behind the major town event took over a room at the town’s Rockfield Centre last week to round up support from people willing to help run and plan this November’s festival.

Videos from last year, including the successful Winter In The Woods nights at Glencruitten, were shown during the cheese and wine pop-in evening.

A festival spokesperson said: ‘Thank you to everyone who attended our volunteer evening. We’re looking forward to taking forward new ideas to enhance your Winter Festival.’

Anyone with more ideas for this year’s event needs to get in touch as soon as possible because the programme is already filling up.
