Golden group

Congratulations to The Rotary Club of Campbeltown which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

The group has struggled with the impact of Covid pandemic restrictions and is in need of new members.

Some misconceptions perhaps exist about Rotary clubs in general, including that they are for men or those who are retired.

This couldn’t be further from the truth; the Campbeltown club’s current president is female and members simply have to be aged 18 or over.

There are many benefits of being part of a Rotary club, including: social networking and meeting people from different walks of life;  developing personal and vocational skills; enhancing understanding of local and global issues; making connections that could lead to business opportunities; rewards from Rotary’s member benefits programme; working with leading national and international charities; and being part of a global community.

Well done, Springbank

Well done to Springbank Distillery for taking the plunge and making changes to its packaging and production processes to help protect the environment.

It must be nerve-wracking to be one of the first – if not THE first – to make such progressive changes in such an illustrious industry but agree that whisky fans are bound to care more about what’s inside the bottles than what surrounds them!
