The Gurn understands that four Highland Council employees that work in the Nairn service point have been issued with redundancy notices and that their positions will be replaced with two new jobs which the four existing employees can apply for.
To this observer that means a diminution of service and two good jobs that will vanish forever from the Nairn landscape. One could be forgiven for wondering if the Courthouse has a long term future as a part of Nairn's Civic landscape.
Liz told the Gurn that this was a shocking decision and a shame for the staff that do such a tremendous job. She sees it as part of a centralisation process and fears for our local identity in the face of the ongoing cuts.
