What’s in This Week’s Oban Times 17th March 2021

Want to read more?

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).

The Oban Times is out on Thursday and in today’s podcast our reporting team brings you a preview of some of the news to expect. With Scotland’s route out of lockdown being confirmed we outline some of the key dates. Plus hopes of a multi-storey car park  in Oban need a rethink after the Tweedale Street site was ruled out. And with summer in mind and an invasion of staycationers, there are concerns that new funding for patrols and facilities to keep on top of the litter won’t go far enough. And staying on that theme, coronavirus seems to have led to a dog poo crisis with owners slinging their bags in trees and hedgerows – but is a lack of bins contributing to the problem? Tune in to hear the team discuss this and more.
