Seasoned observers of Nairn public/protest meetings will know that a crowd of 75 is pretty high up the Richter scale as far as these historical community events are measured, especially on a cold December night. NICE already had the backing of the town’s three Community Council’s, the Association of Nairn Businesses and Visit Nairn but after this evening's meeting in the Community Centre they now have the authenticity of ‘the people’ behind them. NICE now has street-cred and momentum – Highland Council would do well to listen to what the Nairn public wish for their town centre.
If you couldn't make it tonight then never mind the Gurn has obtained a copy of the presentation made by Jimmy Ferguson, Iain Bruce, Matthew Hilton, Mike Barnett. Rosemary Young was MC for the evening with Brian Stewart summing up.
More soon - including the mannie who stole the show
