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. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Pupils from two Lochaber nursery schools enjoyed a visit to Kinlochleven fire station recently to learn all about a day in the life of a firefighter.

St Brides and Kinlochleven nursery children visited the fire station on Friday March 31 as part of their project about the skills required for different jobs.

The children were shown around the fire station, given a talk on the skills needed to become a firefighter and were allowed to sit in the fire engines.

They also tried on firefighter helmets and tried out the water hoses.
Kinlochleven head teacher Heather Thomson said: ‘We would like to thank the staff at Kinlochleven fire station.’
