Lochgilphead Front Green disappointment

While Lochgilhead’s finished Front Green will be a sight to behold, it is disappointing that a second summer is passing by without residents or visitors being able to access it.

Children can only stare with longing through the bars of the fence that, for some, has been there for a lifetime and what seems like a lifetime to others.

All that new play equipment that is so tantalising close but not yet touchable.

Not only that, an 11th hour notice to organisers of the Lochgilphead Celtic and Pictish Festival that not even part of the site can be used is hugely frustrating.

Surely someone at Argyll and Bute Council knew before last week that it couldn’t be done?

But at least the council staff on the ground have done their best to help with the relocation of the festival tomorrow (Saturday August 6) to the Ropework Park.

Now all it needs is for folk to make the effort to go a wee bit further to Ropework Park instead of the centre of town and show their support for this free, lively and entertaining festival.
