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.
Campbeltown and District Juvenile Football Association (CDJFA) has been overwhelmed by the response from a recent social media plea to kit its children out for the winter ahead.
In normal circumstances, the association’s younger age groups would benefit from indoor football but during the current pandemic, this is not possible.
The under-14 age group has been sponsored by Glenturas Construction Ltd, which provided a £415 donation. All children will receive a fleece-lined waterproof training jacket and trousers from the company.
The youngsters will benefit from these jackets at both training games and while playing in the Glasgow and District league.
The 2011 age group has received a donation of £500 towards the winter wear project from the company Kirby which has kitted 15 children out with warm fleece-lined waterproof jacket and trousers.
A CDJFA spokesperson said: ‘The coaches, players and parents are very grateful for these fantastic donations.’
