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’s very own elf on the shelf has been up to tricks again.
Mum Naomi Marsh from Tobermory has been raising cheer once more by putting up daily posts of 22-month-old son Finn getting up to all sorts of naughtiness dressed as a cute elf.
Last year The Oban Times published some of Naomi’s photographs of Finn wreaking havoc and it was such fun. Here is a taste of just some of the latest mischief he got up to for Christmas 2020.
Naomi said: ‘Finn has well and truly jumped back into the role of the mischievous elf. He’s decorated the toilet, visited Spoonville in Tobermory to add a newly decorated festive Spork The Stag, wrapping paper bombed my mum’s office at Island Holiday Cottages, wrapped up all the shoes in the house with cling film and even made a bath full to the top with balloons!
‘We’ve had so many nice comments from people saying the posts are really making their days and they look forward to each post.
‘Finn has been having such a laugh getting up to mischief and It’s really nice to share that smile.’
