At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

Arisaig Women’s Institute held its first meeting of 2017 on January 19.

After business was conducted, the speaker Christoph Ewers, of Ardshealach Smokehouse, gave an interesting insight into his production methods for smoked foods.

The WI was fortunate enough to sample his wares, which members said were ‘delicious’. Some members ordered smoked salmon and smoked cheeses, among other fare.

All money raised from orders on the day are kindly being donated by Mr Ewers to a charity in which he is involved – Cameira, Bolivia.

Competitions were: a two-course menu using a smoked product in at least one course -1. June Cairns, 2. Ann Lamont, 3. Margaret MacEachen, 4. Anne Cameron; a verse from your favourite love poem/song – 1. Ann Lamont, 2.= Margaret MacEachen and Helen Lamb, 3. Anne Cameron, 4. June Cairns.

Anne Cameron wishes to thank the senior citizens and the dancers who donated to the Sandpiper Trust and the sum raised was £240.

The next Arisaig WI meeting is on February 16 at 2.30pm in the Astley Hall.
