A new community magazine ‘Spotlight’ was delivered to me today, it's a free monthly publication delivered to all Nainites along with our post.
I wish the magazine well; more information about our community is always welcome.
The introductory welcome apologies for being brief (Surely a new magazine deserves better) but Spotlight have been ‘literally swamped with requests to print community information and by local businesses wishing to promote their trade’ hmm.
I’m sure Spotlight staff had their gunwales under water, but the end printed publication is a mishmash of adverts for businesses of which disappointingly by far the great majority are based in Forres, hardly ‘Nairn and District’.
Our community is covered by a listing of some of Nairn’s Clubs and Societies, a pastoral letter, a list of church times, and extracts from a meeting of Nairn Suburban Community Council (Last April’s meeting).
Just like the advertising, the ‘What’s on’ section is a merge of events happening in both the Highlands and Moray, and for some reason I found it incredibly difficult to read!
What I assume is a tide table (No month, doesn’t say where it’s for, nor if the times given are for high or low water, or if they are local or GMT times (Sorry to be picky!)) tells us that ‘walking on the beach should be possible 2 hours either side of these times’.
School term dates don’t seem to tally completely with those given by Highland Council, but maybe they are for Moray?
But heh, it’s free! Have you got yours yet? Is this real competition to our Nairnshire Telegraph or indeed The Gurn!?
