Wintersong no more! - Back to Christmas for Nairn

Last year there was a lot of hot debate over the 'Wintersong' celebrations and then controversy over the way the cash was spent on consultants etc,(Budget 33K). Well this year we are firmally back in traditional territory for the Christmas Celebrations with a slimmed down event more fitting for these credit crunched times. A Highland Council press release reads:
"Two Nairn pupils will be assisting Provost Laurie Fraser as they switch on the Christmas lights in Nairn.
Kerr McKellar (P7) and Jade Berry (P7) from Millbank Primary will be centre stage in this community festive spectacular on Friday, 26th November at Nairn Court House which starts at 6.30pm.
The public are invited to join in the Christmas Carols with local adult choir ‘The Accidentals’ and Nairn Academy Choir (S1-S4) as they sing ‘Jingle Bells’, ‘Silent Night’, ‘Away in a Manger’, ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’, and ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’.
The High Street and Gordon Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from 6pm to 7pm.
