Whatever complexion the new community council takes next month there will be one face sorely missed. Margaret Mackintosh is stepping down after 14 years on the council. Over that time she has been to the forefront of debate and many of the issues that the River Council has campaigned on. Only recently she was asking serious question of the planners at the Highland Wide Plan meeting at Nairn Community Centre. She told the Gurn that she thought it was time for someone younger to step forward. Her biggest concern on stepping down is what she sees as the gradual erosion of care services for the elderly in Nairn. Hopefully Margaret will still keep an interest in local affairs and still be prepared to put her views forward when she feels it necessary. The community needs her input and more from others like her. Well done Margaret, enjoy a rest but please still keep campaigning when you can.
