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.

More than 25 children enjoyed an egg hunt at An Cala gardens on Seil on Easter Saturday organised by Kilbrandon’s Messy Church.

Youngsters and their families were given time slots to visit the garden and search for eggs at various points in the ground, all linked to the Nine Stations of the Cross, also getting a sticker at each spot.

Sisters Freya and Iona Bromelow were just some of the children who enjoyed An Cala’s Easter egg hunt on Saturday.

Organiser Maura Rae was delighted with the good turnout on such a sunny day and wanted to thank helpers as well as Sheila Downie of An Cala who gave permission for her garden to be used.
