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 winners of the annual Corrie’s Capers Art competition have been announced after dozens of entries were received from all over the UK. The competition is a popular addition to the series of books about Corrie the dog, which are based on Arran and beyond. It has also been a welcome distraction for children during the lockdown. Pictured is Eva Curley, seven, from Corriegills with her drawing of Corrie at Glen Rosa which was one of two entries highly commended by the judge.
