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 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 In addition your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
A one-day pop-up café for Mental Health Awareness Week was so popular it was extended to seven days.
Kintrye Link Club (KLC) welcomed health professionals and members of the public for a cuppa and some delicious home baking at the community centre café.
In addition, KLC members showed visitors round its premises, explained the vital service offered and spoke about the wide range of mental health problems.
A KLC spokesperson said: ‘The club would like to give a special thanks to Hugh and Rhonda from the Tin Roof, Frances and Ian from Muneroy Tea Rooms, Alan from Newgrove, McIvors and Coastal Design for their generous donations and to all the club members involved in this great event. A total of £227.44 was raised for the club’s funds’
KLC is happy to welcome new members or visitors and is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm in the Community Education Centre.
