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).

The backdrop in Colin MacIntyre’s woodland cabin.

Mull Historical Society’s Colin MacIntyre is inviting people to join him in his Englandshire cabin for an evening of reading and music.

A free event, MHS Lockdown Live will take place on Saturday May 2 on Facebook with any donations being directed to mhs-for-the-nhs Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/mhs-for-the-nhs.

‘Mull Historical Society has always been about building communities for me,’ said Colin.

‘So with that in mind, I would like to invite you, my community, to come together for a gathering where I’ll share some MHS tunes and a book reading live from my woodland cabin.

‘This is a little event to recognise the amazing work being done by front line NHS workers every day during these strange and difficult times.’

Colin’s ‘Calgary Cabin’ features a backdrop from his Origins of Ivor Punch play (set on Mull) which ran last year in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

‘So while I’m in lockdown at least I can walk along Tobermory Main Street, in my garden in England,’ he explained.

‘Pour something cold, or warm, and come join me.’

Lockdown Live from Calgary Cabin can be viewed at 8pm on Saturday May 2 at http://www.facebook.com/mullhistorical
