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).

Lots of news for you this week as Ellis, Kathie and Fiona give you a wee taster of what to expect among the OT’s packed pages. Ellis has been finding out about the massive saving needed to be made by health and social care bosses that could put a question mark over Eader Glinn’s future. There was grand cause for celebration on Mull this week when Owen de la Rey from Mull got a new house for his sixth birthday, his mum Ruth had a chat with Kathie and Fiona introduces the new generation of caretakers who have stepped up to be office bearers of the Friends of Oban Community Playpark group. There is also some exciting Bob MacIntyre news on the sports pages following his outing at the Dubai Desert Classic on Sunday.

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