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).

To recognise the work being done by the NHS during the coronavirus crisis, Fiuran Property recently held a children’s Thank you NHS poster competition on Facebook. The competition was open to any child aged 12 and under living in the Oban and Fort William areas, and Fiuran Property pledged to donate £1 to ‘NHS Charities Together’ for every entry received.

Laura Pagan from Fiuran Property said: ‘We were overwhelmed by the standard of entries, and it was so difficult to choose a winner as all of the posters were beautifully creative and inspiring.

‘After a lot of deliberation, we chose Ava Cameron’s Rainbow with fluffy clouds poster and are delighted to be sending Ava a craft box to keep her busy during lockdown. We will also be sending a little prize to everyone who entered as we thought all of the posters were great.’

Kelie Cooper from Fiuran Property added: ‘We understand how difficult it can be to keep children entertained during these challenging times, so we hope the competition helped to curb boredom while also building an awareness of the fantastic work our NHS are doing.’
