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).
Pupils and staff at Oban’s Rockfield Primary School had that warm, fuzzy feeling when wearing Christmas jumpers helped them raise hundreds of pounds.
Festive sparkle and cheer filled the classrooms and corridors on the Oban campus when one Friday earlier this month was declared official Christmas Jumper Day.
Depute head Laura Fawdry said: ‘What a wonderful array of designs and colours appeared in school!
‘The pupils, teachers and support staff have gone out of their way to come up
with ingenious ideas for decorating their class doors for Christmas!’
Snowmen and even the Grinch were just some of the ideas youngsters came up with as excitement for December 25 builds.
The £275.27 made from Christmas Jumper Day will be added to more funds to come from the school party day and the PTA raffle.
Ms Fawdry added: ‘A huge thank you to everyone who was able to contribute to this and the money will go to the school fund.’
