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.

A trio of kind-hearted elves delivered more than 30 hampers of donated goodies to elderly and deserving citizens across Campbeltown in the days before Christmas.

Campbeltown Grammar School students Casey Mackenzie, Carla Cameron-Smith and Caitlin Collett, assisted by Mandy Robertson, development worker at youth support group The Hub, and Nona Ruesgen, manager at Kintyre Alcohol and Drugs Advisory Service, delivered the hampers last Tuesday and Wednesday.

The thoughtful girls came up with the idea during a leadership class at school and launched an appeal for donations.
