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).
A charity bingo night in Oban raised £1,726 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust last Friday.
The money was raised through bingo book sales and a raffle that boasted prizes such as a night for two with dinner at The George Hotel, Inveraray, and a Tennent’s Brewery tour.
The trust will use the money to help fund research into the condition.
Promoter Andrew Buchanan expressed a ‘huge thank you’ to all of the businesses that donated ‘wonderful raffle prizes’.
He said: ‘And a very special mention to our bingo caller, the wonderful Nicola Wilson, who ensures everyone enjoys an entertaining night.
‘Thanks to everyone who bought books of ticket or joined us on the night.
‘Your support will go a long way to building brighter futures and fighting for a life unlimited for those affected by cystic fibrosis.’
There will be another charity bingo night this Friday in aid of the Oban branch of Cancer Research at The View from 7pm.
