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.

After a very successful MOKFest, music lovers can look forward to another concert in the very near future.

On Wednesday, September 4 at 7.30pm, well-known folksinger, entertainer and broadcaster Alastair McDonald will be in concert in Campbeltown Free Church.

This will not be Alastair’s first visit to the Wee Toon. Most recently he performed as part of Quatro MacJazz at the Kintyre Music Club in March this year.

All proceeds from the concert will go to help support Govan Community Project, which, although a relatively recent venture, has already helped many in that area of Glasgow.

Originally a response of community and church members to the needs of newly arrived asylum seekers, the church community project has developed to become a local charity working with and for all the diverse communities of the Greater Govan area and beyond.

Concert entry will be £7, or £5 for senior citizens and non-wage earners. Tickets will be available at the door and also from Shopper-Aide, 47 Longrow, and from Campbeltown Free Church.
