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).
Another press day rolls around and Oban Times reporters Kathie and Ellis discuss what’s in the news this week. There’s the roll-out of drones to help transport medical supplies between the hospital and islands sites as the vaccination programme kicks into gear. There’s also news that the lockdown has seen Martyn’s Monday Club coming under increasing demand and there are calls for Oban to start fund-raising now if the town wants to put on a festive display at Christmas 2021. Plus there’s an update on the bats who’ve apparently set up home in a pair of decorative Christmas trees which must now remain in place
All this and more online and in this Week’s Oban Times and online
