Councillor Rosemary Young of the West CC, spoke to the meeting in the Courthouse of her fear that along with the swimming pool we would loose the other facilities on the Links run by the Leisure Centre staff:
A lot of the front, the Links, the Paddling Pool, the heart of Nairn that bring tourists here If you went down there a couple of weeks back when the sun was out there were people everywhere. Daytrippers enjoying it and looking forward to the paddling pool being open. If you rip that out of Nairn, the heart will go. Please listen to us. You can get money out of Highland Council. Just get rid of those layers that have accumulated over the last 20 years – rip these out and fix that budget.’
Applause followed Rosemary’s statement. Well said Rosemary, the Swimming Pool staff take care of a few other things that are essential for Nairn's role as a seaside town!
