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.
‘Something in the water’
We’ve said in this column before that there must be something in the water here in Kintyre to continually produce so many talented musicians.
As well as those who excel while playing for their home town bands, this includes many musicians who continue to be recognised for their talents when they move on to other, often bigger bands across the country.
The impressive news from both Kintyre Schools Pipe Bank and Campbeltown Brass in this week’s edition shows that these young musicians remained dedicated to their art throughout one of the most challenging periods of their lives, when group practices were cancelled and it could have been tempting to focus on other things.
Their success undoubtedly comes as a result of a huge amount of practice and hard-work and not really ‘something in the water’, and we will never get tired of saying how much of a credit they are to this area.
We hope you enjoy the photographs of the lambs on the front page and the winning entries from the Friends of Castlehill’s Easter egg decorating competition. Receiving them certainly cheered us up!
Visit our website at www.campbeltowncourier.co.uk to see more entries.
Happy Easter everyone – hopefully this is the last we will have to spent apart from our family and friends.
