In last week’s Oban Times there was a lovely piece about a cheery binman called Sean MacVicar who brought a smile to people’s faces by being cheery and happy. BID4Oban had also been contacted by Ailsa MacKinnon who was so impressed by Sean bringing a smile to her daughters face.

This has inspired us to recognise the people in our community who do so much to spread a little happiness and Sean will be the first recipient of the Making a Difference award.

We need the people of Oban to help with this and let us know who the people in our community are who go that wee bit further to help or cheer people up, the ones that make your day a bit brighter.

Let’s celebrate the good instead of concentrating on the bad for a change and say thank you to the positive influences who make life that bit better.

It’s really easy to nominate someone, you can Message the LoveOban Facebook page, email kay@bid4oban.co.uk or call the BID4Oban office on 01631 569915, all we need to know is who they are and what they do that makes them special.

I’m sure there are hundreds of people out there who go out of their way to add a little cheer to the town – we’re lucky enough to be part of a very caring community and that deserves to be recognised, not just for the big things but for the little things too. I’m really looking forward to hearing from everyone.

The photograph last week was of the new Scotrail Highland Explorer Active Rail carriage when it came into town.

This week’s photograph is a bit different but you don’t have to go very far to find the subject.
