News in brief: La Barca retains title, fire station ‘like an ice rink’

La Barca restaurant in Helensburgh has won a national award for the second year in succession.

At an awards ceremony in Glasgow last night the West Clyde Street tapas restaurant retained the best Mediterranean cuisine title which it won last year – it reached the final of the Scottish Entertainment Awards after votes from customers, then was judged by secret diners.

Cove’s fire station area is ‘like an ice rink’ in wintry weather and needs to be gritted, a meeting heard last week.

Cove and Kilcreggan community councillors agreed to contact Argyll and Bute Council asking for the fire statin to be added to the gritting plan.

Cllr George Freeman described the situation as ‘a minefield’ as Argyll and Bute doesn’t own the site and a precedent could be created.

But Fiona Howard said this should be a special case and Murdo MacDonald added: “It is important to make the point that it is water running down South Ailey Road that makes it much worse.”
