'It would be a great step forward if the "other 3", (if you get my jist) stepped forward and made it along to this meeting with Liz to give their support, or could it be a political step to far, opposed to local electoral plight??Now I know that the gurn is read by the mighty ones, I thought I might try some intimidation....!!
Gurnites get involved: go to the MacLean Court campaign toolkit page.

The idea sounds good.

I'm not exactly sure why but for some reason this event comes to mind!

Putting the record straight - when the proposal to close McLean Court became definate last Friday I spoke to the Convenor Sandy Park half a dozen times between then and it coming to Highland Council and it is with Sandy's help and intervention that the decision to close was deferred.
I will continue to try and make a reasoned case and justification to retain the day care, which I believe is an essential life line for the clients as well providing as respite for their carers.
The bottom line in the paper is that it states 'Services to 12 people who have low levels of assessed need would cease' One client asked me 'I hope we wouldn't have to travel out of Nairn, where would they take us to instead?' The sad fact is there is nowhere else!
