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).

Mull Crisis Management group stepped in to help Father Christmas make a flying visit this year amid the doom and gloom of the pandemic.

Councillor Mary-Jean Devon made it happen and the group was keen for a bit of positivity on the island with so many events written off this year.

Santa on tour

Utilising the power of Zoom, villages in Tobermory, Salen, Dervaig and Craignure all linked-up to co-ordinate a whistle-stop tour for the big man who brought a spectacular lightshow with him.

And the Ross of Mull did not miss out as a ‘Santa path’ was created to help link the communities.

Among those to participate were Liz Davidson in Tobermory aided by Mary-Jean, Sarah Smith and Penny Goode.

Duties in Craignure were led by Helen Dewar, while Helen McWalter and Kerry Mitchell took care of Salen.

Many more contributed and helped out and it saw positive comments pour in from  over-the-moon parents with wide-eyed wee ones who unanimously declared his sudden arrival ‘fantastic’.
