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.

Golfers turned out in force last Saturday to compete for Dunaverty Golf Club’s RNLI Club Stableford Cup, with 42 men and 18 ladies taking part in the annual competition.

The weather, although warm and dry, was beset by strong gusting winds which made for tough playing conditions.

Early starter John Wareham came in with a leading total of 37 points. John Marrison, in the group behind, eclipsed the leader by producing an excellent total of 40 points.

Further back in the field, Dugald Graham and Malcolm Ronald made valiant efforts to catch John but failed by just one point, with Dugald beating Malcolm in the inward half to occupy the runner-up spot.

The ladies did extremely well with three finishing in the top ten. In her first competitive season, Katie Cappello came out on top with 38 points, one ahead of Elizabeth Marrison and Linn Coffield.

Overall results: 1 John Marrison 40 points; 2 Dugald Graham 39 (bih); 3 Malcolm Ronald 39; 4 Katie Cappello 38; 5 John Wareham 37 (bih); 6 Elizabeth Marrison 37.

Men’s results: 1 John Marrison 40; 2 Dugald Graham 39; 3 Malcolm Ronald 39; 4 John Wareham 37 (bih); 5 Ross Sinclair 37 (bih); 6 Steven Garrett 37.
