The Maggot: a U-turn coming?

The IC has covered another controversial Nairn issue this week with an article and a leader on the subject of popular discontent that has arisen over the proposed name change of Maggot Road to Riverside Drive. The Courier backs the people of Nairn, ' We stand four square behind the townsfolk's cause,' they say.
Meanwhile elsewhere in the Courier Sandy Park is quoted as saying: 'The decision is not set in stone. It has become quite an emotive subject in Nairn and the council has to listen to the people.'
Keep up the pressure Gurnites, they are having to listen now.

Good point. I would also add that we need to stand firm. Yes, yes, laugh all you want, but I do mean it. I am a nice girl, really. Went to a convent school and everything. Ok, maybe not so good then

Having just read on another Local? blog that the "Toorie" on the links has now been renamed the "troolie".What Next with Nairn?

More of the same said...

and the Fishertown has become Fishtown on the same 'local' blog.
Perhaps other names will be changed, we could all live in 'Na' now couldn't we? na
