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.

Oban’s MS Therapy Centre had hoped to celebrate its 30th anniversary at a special event in the town’s Argyllshire Gathering Halls on Saturday March 21. But the coronavirus crisis led to the event being cancelled. Plans for the party had been at an advanced stage and a birthday cake had arrived. No-one wanted the cake to be wasted so the centre’s trustees donated the cake to Oban’s Hope Kitchen. Centre trustee Claire Hoey, left, is pictured presenting the cake to Hope Kitchen’s Services Manager Catriona Petit.
