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. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

Like many other events up and down the country, what would have been the 14th consecutive year of the Arran Mountain Festival had to be cancelled in May due to the restrictions imposed to combat the spread of Covid 19.

As is usual at this time of year the organising committee gather for our agm to reflect on the previous year and to look ahead to the coming festival on the weekend of 14-17 May 2021.

The committee invites you to join the meeting to find out how you can get involved in this popular annual festival, be it as a participant, walk leader, committee member or sponsor.

Due to Covid restrictions the agm is behind held via Zoom this year on Tuesday November 3 at 6.30pm. To be able to take part, please register via the AMF Facebook page or AMF website.

Chairman Jackie Kemp said: ‘At AMF we feel that it is important to promote that the festival is a wholly community based, volunteer led organisation where we actively encourage local involvement and participation, so why not join us at the agm.

‘This will enable you to find out more about what the Arran Mountain Festival is all about and provide the opportunity for you to contribute your thoughts and suggestions for the festival going forward.

‘We look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday,’ he added
