Your chance to win winter woods tickets

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).

Tickets for this year’s illuminated winter woods experience are up for grabs at a fundraising bingo night in Oban tomorrow, Friday September 6.

The View in George Street is hosting the evening in aid of November’s week-long Oban Winter Festival and it includes a raffle.

One of the festival organisers, Pamela Lockhart, said: ‘Last year all the tickets for the winter woods trail at Glencruitten sold out in just half an hour so this is a good way of getting yours before anyone else. Good luck in the raffle!

‘We hope as many people as possible will come along tomorrow night to The View and give us their support. The dates are set and we’re busy behind the scenes planning yet another packed festival week for everyone.’

This year’s festival run from Friday to Sunday, November 15 to 24.
