Council pantomime for Ardrishaig

A reader with sharp eye and a sense of fun  noticed that this Thursday’s meeting of Argyll and Bute Council - 19th December – is to be held, not at Kilmory in Lochgilphead but down the road in Ardrishaig Public Hall.

Since this is the traditional venue for Christmas pantomimes, the suggested Council performance was ‘The Seven Dwarfs’ – since there is no Snow White at Kilmory but there are plenty of options for the dwarves – with Council Leader Dick Watch a natch for Doc.

Other nominations from our reader include:

  • Grumpy: Councillor Jimmy McQueen
  • Happy – Councillor Roddy McCuish
  • Dopey – Councillor Alistair MacDougall

We can only hope that the decision to take a meeting to Ardrishaig does not signal the first of a fool’s progress around Argyll and the Isles, with Scotland’s joke council parodying the Scottish Government’s adopted habit of set piece summer cabinet photo-opportunities, dispensing local goody-bags across the territory.

  1. Casting soon to take place for next years “Ali Baba & the forty thieves”, but it’s reckoned there’s a very short list for the lead (if any) and Morgiana’s already in post? The rest are all spoken for!
