What’s in This Week’s Oban Times 23rd 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).

Ho, Ho, Ho! Your Oban Times is out to buy now, full of the latest news and seasonally stuffed with some ‘crackers’ of photos. Nibbles from this week’s OT selection box from Kathie, Fiona and Ellis include an inspiring catch-up with Oban Covid-survivor James Scott appealing for everyone to stay safe but make the most of what Christmas regulations will allow to protect us and our loved ones. There’s also a plea for people to give our posties a break while they do their best to get sackfuls of letters and parcels to us and then there is news about Innes Hughes, Mr Gym, who is limbering up to raise money for Martyn’s Monday Club. Tuck in and enjoy!


All this and more online and in this Week’s Oban Times and online
