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.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
Duror Primary School pupils have been showing family and friends what they have been learning about the passenger ship Titanic.
All the children dressed up as their chosen character from the film and parents, families and community members were invited along to hear and see the children’s presentations on the topic.
The school thanked the parents for supporting and encouraging their children throughout the project.
A school spokesperson said: ‘This was a very interesting topic which motivated the children from the start. Everyone who attended wrote positive comments about the event on evaluation sheets provided by the children.
‘The open afternoon was well attended, with tea, coffee and cakes provided. Special thanks to parent Mrs MacNeill who baked Titanic-themed cakes.’
