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 our journalists, so to get full access to all your local news updated 7-days-a-week – PLUS an e-edition of the Arran Banner – subscribe today for as little as 48 pence per week.
Imacher Beach will be the first beach of the new decade to be cleaned by the Arran Beach Buddies who hold monthly beach cleanups around the island.
With the weather forecast, and the tides, looking favourable for the event, the January beach clean will take place on Sunday (tomorrow) at 2pm.
All are welcome to join and pickers and bags will be supplied. Volunteers are requested to wear stout boots and gloves are compulsory. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Volunteers can meet at the small car park just before the road turns right up the hill towards Pirnmill when coming from Machrie. Beach cleanups by the Arran Beach Buddies are sponsored by Isle of Arran Ice Cream and The Parlour, Brodick.
