‘When are the buses coming?’ is the demand that headlines the front page of the Nairnshire this week. John Mackie of the Suburban council is getting his teeth into timetable troubles again and wondering how folk wanting to get to see their GPs in the afternoon will fare when the Lodgehill clinic moves to the new hospital.

Plenty of other stuff including details of curling and soccer achievements. Soccer is something we haven’t seen in Nairn for 8 or is it 9 or 10 weeks now?
