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).

On Monday October 29, the Craft and Company group of Nether Lochaber
Church had an interesting visit from Bill Clifford, an ambassador for Mary’s Meals.

Mr Clifford gave a most informative and thought-provoking
presentation on the global work of this marvellous charity which, of
course, has links to this area as it was founded in Dalmally by Magnus
MacFarlane-Barrow.

Anne Thomson and Elsa Rossetter presented 10 back packs which the craft
group had filled over the past few months and the congregational treasurer, David Thomson, handed over a cheque for £190 from the congregation from the Harvest Thanksgiving Service. Tanya Nicolson, with the help of her son Sam, had filled seven packs and these too were handed over.

The afternoon in the church hall was rounded off with tea and cakes.
