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. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

A charity bingo night at The View last week raised £350 for Oban Youth Cafe.

Every month the George Street venue raises funds for a local charity or organisation through bingo.

Oban Youth Cafe is a safe space for high school pupils to drop in and play pool,  Xbox, games, cook in the kitchen, do art and craft, and chat.

Number caller Nicola Wilson said: ‘Thanks to everyone who came along to support us and donated raffle prizes.’

The next charity bingo event will be held on Easter Sunday. There will be children’s games from 1pm until 2.30pm and the adults will have their turn from 2.30pm until 3pm.
