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

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Kintyre’s ultimate feel-good cure for eating  and drinking too much.

Campbeltown Running Club is once again hosting its Boxing Day Slog in the Sand.

There is a 10K and a fun 5K, which even walkers and their dogs can join in with, and best of all, it is all in aid of a very good cause.

So get along to Westport Beach on December 26 in plenty of time for the registration which opens at 10.30am, ready for the 11am start.

It costs £3 to join in the fun and all the proceeds are going to the Sunshine Room at Campbeltown Hospital.
