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.

Shiskine Golf Club

Shiskine recently held its first junior fun days to encourage more youngsters to take up the sport.

Bad weather had forced organisers to reschedule them.

Four juniors took part on the first day and eight on the second. They played over six holes from the junior tees. The emphasis was on fun. Each junior was encouraged to mark a ‘card’.

Each hole was different and points were awarded for nearest the pin, drive nearest the line and for least number of shots over the burn. Points were also awarded for the least shots taken to sink putts.

There was a prizegiving in the clubhouse afterwards and goody bags were handed out. Many thanks to everyone who helped out and made both days successful.
