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.
It would not be August without the Salvation Army holding a holiday club.
For three days, from August 12 to 14, the theme was an Adventure Cruise.
The children firstly spoke about cruise ships on the ‘high seas’ and then had fun learning about ‘high Cs’ – namely choice, change and commitment.
Through sketches, Bible presentations, games, songs, crafts, team challenges and outdoor play the children found out how Jesus can help them with these three aspects of their life.
They learned that making good choices can change their attitude to different things in their lives.
The Army Kidz group has restarted and always welcomes children to join in activities each Sunday morning. Watch out for the Salvation Army minibus around town each week and for more information contact the citadel in Burnside Street.
