Such a tragedy

Argyll is a close-knit community. It’s often the case that if you don’t know someone personally, you generally know someone who does.

Which is part of the reason why, though Benderloch falls slightly beyond the Argyllshire Advertiser’s core circulation area, last Sunday’s tragedy reverberates around these parts.

For most of us it is difficult to comprehend what Kayla’s parents, family and friends must be going through, and we can only offer our thoughts and prayers at such a testing time.

Musical youth

Mid Argyll is a hotbed of musical talent, and it is great to see the young folk standing up and raising cash for a new Inveraray youth project.

These musical kids themselves have been the beneficiaries of lots of time, dedication and hard work by others which allowed their talent to flourish, so it is nice to see them completing the circle and puttling something back.

And the concert should be a great night.

Well earned

If ever a man had earned a rest, it has to be Peter Ciaralla.

We wish him all the best in his retirement.
