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).
Oban High School’s after school shinty club marked the end of its term’s training sessions with an inter-school Bulls v Sharks match with around 20 players taking part.
This brought an end to what has been a successful series of after school sessions delivered by club coaches Les Kinvig and Stephen Campbell who have been working hard to provide pupils with extra curricular shinty while meeting all of the high school and Camanachd Association’s Covid 19 regulations.
The game itself was a high scoring affair with the Bulls running out 8-7 winners.
Both teams were supported by Oban High School Shinty Ambassadors William MacEwan and Pearce MacBeth, who will be working in partnership with the Camanachd Association, Oban High School School of Shinty and Active Schools to promote shinty activities within the school for the remainder of the school year.
