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.

Dunaverty Golf Club’s ladies section held its annual pairs competition in aid of the Blind Veterans UK charity – formerly known as St Dunstan’s – on Tuesday July 14.

Despite it being another wet ‘dreich’ day, everyone who played managed some great golf.

The way in which partners were drawn – one from lower and one from those holding a higher handicap – made it a lovely way for the club’s newer players to gain experience.

Eight teams played with six recording nett scores in the 60s, however, there was a brilliant 56.8 nett by the two Katharines – Hardman and Cappello – which included five pars.

Two other teams had birdie twos – Elizabeth Marrison and Lea Brown’s at the 16th and Ailie MacBrayne and Linn Coffield’s at the 7th.

Result: 1 Katharine Hardman and Katie Cappello, 82-25.2=56.8; 2 Ailie MacBrayne and Linn Coffield 80-19.8=60.2; 3 Mary McKinnon and Mary Wilson 90-24=66, bih from Elizabeth Marrison and Laura Dyson also with nett 66.
