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.

Fundraising cheques have been presented to four charities in memory of a former golf club captain at Glencruitten.

Oban Hospice Dove Centre Co-ordinator Peter Darling said: ‘The grand sum of £6,700 was raised at the John MacEachen Memorial golf tournament held recently at Glencruitten Golf Club, Oban. The event attracted 168 players.

‘Four charities will benefit – Friends of Oban Hospice at the Dove Centre; Pink Ladies Day; the Macmillan Day Bed Unit at Lorn and Islands Hospital and Marie Curie.’

Enthusiastic golfer John MacEachen was a former captain of Glencruitten Golf Club and the competition is held annually in tribute to him.

‘The MacEachen family, once again, thank everyone who supported the event,’ added Mr Darling.
