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.

Pupils from Brodick Nursery celebrated World Book Day with a number of literary-themed activities at their nursery and with their neighbours at Arran Library.

During the week children enjoyed some of their favourite stories which were brought to life with interactive puppet shows.

Nursery children regularly enjoy weekly Book Bug sessions at the library with Nickey Summer and to celebrate World Book Day last Wednesday the children took part in a special Book Bug session where they dressed up as their favourite book characters. These included the much loved Katie Morag, Fantastic Mr Fox, Gingerbread Man and Aliens Love Underpants.
