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).
Pupils at Oban Primary Campus came back after Easter to find that their playground had been transformed.
The children were very excited as new games had been created, brightening up the playground and encouraging everyone to join in and have fun.
The work was able to be completed due to the application for a grant to Tesco Bags of Help Funding, which was submitted by Lyndsay Elliott on behalf of Rockfield PTA and they were awarded the fantastic amount of £4,000 towards an upgrade of the playground.
The designs were chosen in conjunction with St Columba’s PTA.
A spokesperson for the school said: ‘We would like to thank Lyndsay for submitting the application, Tesco for the very generous award, Mitie for supporting the project and the PTA for their support in this venture.’
