Something for the Weekend 11th December 2020

Want to read more?

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).

More journalistic jolly japes from Fiona and Kathie interspersed with some moments of sanity from IT whiz Stephen Day, who won’t be talking sci-fi this week, and by our somewhat more sensible guests.

This week we have Dee Bradbury and her husband Nick to tell us a heart stopping story with a thankfully happy ending as well as a wee bit music from Dunbeg singer songwriter Mike Nisbet. Fiona and Kathie talk Christmas decorations, or the lack of them, while Steevie sits back with his baffies on admiring the Lochavullin tree.

Good chat and fun from the Oban Times team.
