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).

TSL Contractors Ltd has been awarded the contract to construct 60 houses at the former Lochyside Primary School site in Caol, Fort William.

Work will commence in January and will continue into late summer of 2019.

TSL said: ‘We strongly believe in working closely with, and investing in the local economy. With this in mind, we would like to work with local labour, contractors and suppliers on the project wherever possible.

‘To provide an easily accessible platform for this, TSL will be holding a contractor and supplier open day. During the event, staff from our procurement and project departments will be on hand to discuss the various opportunities and would be delighted to meet any interested parties during the event which will run from 4pm to 6.30pm at Caol Community Centre on Tuesday December 12.

‘If you are unable to make the event or would like further information on the project please feel free to contact our general manager, John Forbes, at j.forbes@tslcontractors.co.uk for further details.’
