Happy lockdown birthday – June 5, 2020

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. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

We value our content, so access to our full site is only available on 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.

And there’s more – your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Having a birthday during the lockdown is strange, to say the least. While government guidelines on minimising social contact are in place, sadly we can’t enjoy a birthday celebration with friends and family.
You can, though, have your birthday celebrated in the Argyllshire Advertiser.
Happy Birthday

Send us a photograph of your family member or friend enjoying their special day and we will publish it and wish them a happy birthday.

Remember to include their full name, age, where they are from and a bit about what you did to make the day at home special.

Send your photographs to editor@argyllshireadvertiser.co.uk
