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

Everyone was a winner in a frighteningly good Hallowe’en art competition run by Inveraray Community Council, with prizes donated by The Tipsy Laird.

Budding local artists were invited to submit their scariest drawings and paintings to be hung on the community hall fencing.

The standard was excellent and the official winners were Harry McColl Smith in first place, with Tereza in second and, winning the third prize, Daisy Mather. Joint fourth were Isla Robertson and Rian.

Community council convener Linda Divers said: ‘Well done to everyone. The Hallowe’en pictures were great.

‘A huge thanks to David and Cathie at the Tipsy Laird for donating all the prizes.’

She added: ‘Look out for the next competition at Christmas for your chance to win a fantastic prize.’
