Trust take over wishing well

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.

The Arran Trust has taken over custody of Brodick’s famous wishing well at Brodick Pier from the Isle of Arran Rotary Club which has folded on the island.

The outgoing Rotarians donated their remaining funds of approximately £6,000 to the Trust, and agreed they would also be the best local organisation to take over their wishing well, which was established by the Rotary back in 2002.

As the island’s visitor gifting charity, the Arran Trust are extremely grateful for this generous donation and the opportunity to raise funds for Arran’s environmental and conservation groups, at an area of great visitor footfall.
