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).

Youngsters at St Bride’s Primary School said farewell to their head teacher on Thursday June 21 at a special service in Nether Lochaber Parish Church.

Susan Kemp has been head teacher at the school for 21 years and is retiring at the end of term.

During the service, in which the pupils took part, Miss Kemp was presented with a Bible and flowers on behalf of the congregation.

She expressed her thanks for the gifts and her appreciation of the warm and close relationship which had flourished between the church and school over the years, making special mention of the school’s use of the church to enhance their Christmas concerts and nativity plays over the last 12 years.
