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.

Ardrishaig and South Knapdale parishes are looking to get their streets singing on Sunday, December 20, when taking part in a nationwide initiative.

Carols from Your Doorstep has been organised to ensure it’s anything but a silent night with neighbourhoods from all over Scotland being urged to take part.

‘Traditional door-to-door caroling is clearly not possible this year due to Covid-19 restrictions but it is hoped that filling the streets with the joyful sound of classics like Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Away in a Manger and O Come All Ye Faithful will send out a strong message that Christmas is not cancelled,’ said Reverend David Carruthers, Minister for Ardrishaig and South Knapdale.

‘People can sing from their doorsteps or by their window.

‘In Ardrishaig we hope to raise funds for next year’s pensioners’ Christmas Dinner, which was cancelled this year along with the usual fund raising events.’

The appropriately distanced Christmas cacophony will begin at 6pm and will last approximately 15 minutes. Carol Sheets can be picked up within the community.
