Life Changing Films and Health & Happiness talks

From Mairi Stones of Change is Always Possible, Benderloch

Free Health and Happiness Talks: My journey to find recovery from ME/CFS has taken me along many fascinating paths. Not only have I now added EFT and Matrix Reimprinting to my list of qualifications and experience, I have learned a whole new way of looking at and treating what ails us. Through these monthly talks I hope to encourage, support and inspire you to make positive changes in your own lives so you too can improve your health and happiness. Held in Rockfield School, Oban.
Films That Transform: the last few years have also introduced me to many interesting and fascinating non-mainstream films which I believe are life changing and can help you transform the way you see yourself and the world. I want to share these with others, partly to spread the word but also as a way to meet and spend time with others who are interested in these subjects. Held in Victory Hall, Benderloch

Informal fibre fun

Do you fancy being part of some very informal but gently constructive fibre fun for a few folk this year ..

First wee gathering on this Friday  but otherwise would be either weekends, or week days, depending on when folk are free to gather or at a time that suits any particular activity.

Bring whatever fibre crafty thing you are doing, or if you want to try anything others have, or someone else can bring – like a spinning wheel, spindle, inkle loom, triangle loom, knitting / crochet needles, urm – felting needles..

A828 works on road north of Benderloch delayed again

We regret to inform you that due to an unforeseen quarry breakdown which has impacted on our
resurfacing programme, the works on the A828 North of Benderloch due to commence on Friday 2nd
December have now been delayed to Monday 5th December.

Location plan of Benderloch road works
The works are still to be constructed during the hours of 7am and 7pm each day under a 10mph convoy
traffic management system, with no works planned for the weekend.
Some minor delays are unfortunately inevitable but efforts will be made to keep these to a minimum.
BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland wish to thank the local community and the travelling public in
advance for their patience during these essential works.
Should you require further information, or wish to discuss these proposals, please do not hesitate to
contact Craig Kerr, Graduate Design Engineer, by e-mail
