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.

Look out for some stunning artwork from local artists which will be up for auction throughout the month of May.

Mid Argyll Fundraising Group For Marie Curie will hold a virtual art auction – each gorgeous piece has a daffodil theme and is available to view on the group’s Facebook page.

Bids for the auction will support the local work of the Marie Curie charity, which provides front line nursing and hospice care as well as support on all aspects of dying, death and bereavement.

Julie Brown, chairperson of Mid Argyll Fundraising Group For Marie Curie, said: ‘We would like to thank all local artists who have contributed to our auction and brightened our day with their beautiful daffodil-inspired pieces.

‘Bids must be submitted by May 31.’
