Remember the Mantrap! This week’s Oban Times brings you news that the old institution that poured its last pint in Argyll Street about 20 years ago is opening its doors again – TheView’s Daniel MacIntyre has just got licensing for it. Oban Helps Ukraine is opening a free clothes shop at The Rockfield Centre for refugees it is expecting to arrive soon, we’ve got photos from last weekend’s Mull Music Festival and get your kilts out – this weekend Oban sees the return of the Highlands & Islands Music & Dance Festival. Also in this week’s OT we have news that CalMac are consulting on cancellation fees. The Church of Scotland’s proposals to close half of Islay’s kirks would be ‘disastrous’, islanders say. Plus, a breakthrough at Royal Mail (hopefully) after many cases of late medical letters in the Oban area. And of course we have an action-packed sports round up for you too.
