When the nominations started for this years ForArgyll awards I was one of the first to nominate the Jura Passenger Ferry. Not that a reward will solve their financial problems but getting enough publicity and showing that the ferry exists, and is there for everyone to use, is perhaps the greatest award they can get. The nomination phase started about a week ago and much to my surprise and pleasure the Jura Passenger Ferry ended up being a finalist in the category best tourism initiative. The Jura Passenger Ferry has to compete with the Lochgoilhead Fiddle Workshop, Mull Eagle Watch and the Walking Theatre Company.
What can you do to support the Jura Passenger Ferry? Visit the ForArgyll website and go to the page forargyll.com/forargyll-votes-2009/. Here you can submit one vote per category. The Jura Passenger Ferry is the only Jura related website. Another Jura related candidate is the Ileach, Islay and Jura Newspaper, and there are several participants from Islay. Enough for everyone I should say so please go to the ForArgyll website and vote. Thanks very much.
