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.
An improvement in the weather forecast will allow Beach Buddies Arran to undertake their beach clean at Torrylinn Beach, Kilmory, tomorrow (Sunday).
Taking place from 10.30am until 12.30pm – or as long as you can manage – volunteers are invited to go along and take part in the fun and environmentally responsible event.
A spokesperson from Beach Buddies said: ‘Due to limited parking at the beach please park at Kilmory Hall and enjoy the walk to and from the beach. Thanks to our sponsors Isle of Arran Dairy Ice Cream and the Parlour Brodick for their continued support’.
Volunteers are required to wear sensible footwear and gloves are compulsory. Light showers are forecast so appropriate clothing will be required. Pickers and bags will be provided.
