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.

Council officials have partially reopened the playpark at Atlantis Leisure.

It follows a notice being placed at the site in Oban telling visitors the playpark was closed until further notice.

The play park was inspected as part of an annual once over with repairs required on individual pieces of equipment.

Councillor Elaine Robertson, for Oban, North and Lorn, said: ‘Our guys from the council have worked hard to open it for the children.’

‘Part of the playpark has been screened off and some defective equipment has now been removed.’

A council spokesperson said: ‘We have reopened Atlantis playpark, but the items still requiring maintenance are closed off.

‘We are working hard to source the necessary parts to do the repairs.’
