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).

Caol and Lochyside Community Response Group has opened a ‘Community Cupboard’ at Caol Shopping Centre for anyone needing help during the coronavirus lockdown.

The cupboard contains non- perishable foods, cleaning products, toiletries, hygiene products, books and jigsaws.

There is a drop-off point for cupboard donations in Caol Co-op and plans are in place for a second cupboard in Lochyside.

Two of the group's younger volunteers, Lucy and Angus Riddle, display their official badges. NO-F19-Caol-support-young-volunteers.jpg
