You couldn't come to the ball

We are sure it will be of no surprise to readers of that fine Inverness broadsheet The Inverness Courier, to find that the paper been awarded a prestigious Newspaper of the Year award at the Highland and Islands Media awards.
The award ceremony took place last Saturday at Nairn’s Newton hotel, with first minister Alex Salmond handing out the cash.
The Press Ball is always well supported by Highland media folk, the event raising welcome funds for charity with a great night being had by all.
The seasonally chill weather seemed to keep many participants inside the hotel on the Sunday morning; historically a bracing walk along the bankie is the order of the day in order to blow the remnants of the previous nights ‘small sherry’ out of the editorial systems.
It will be of no surprise to regular Gurn readers to hear that the esteemed blog was not nominated for any of the awards this year. This is of great relief to Gurn staff as all have two left feet when it comes to dancing, and a definite allergy to sherry

And good to see that this award winning newspaper is still advertising its Christmas supplement on its web page

They certainly know how to do things at the Courier
