Keeping Nairnshire Colourful need a hand on Saturday the 24th and also the following weekend on Saturday 1st of October. Both days are a 9.00 a.m. start. The aim is to create a vivid blue loch at the bottom of the Cemetery Brae. Last year thousands of Muscari (Grape Hyacinth) bulbs were planted to create an impressive river of blue. Next spring if the work is completed, the river will flow into a loch.
Keeping Nairnshire Colourful will also be planting 110,000 bulbs at other locations around town and are always on the look-out for more volunteers. If you want to get involved in the group's work ring Dougie Gray on 01667 460003 or give Billy a PM on the Facebook page.
Dougie told the Courier recently: I am interested in the town looking bonnie. I think it is important to make the approaches to Nairn, whether it is from the east, west or south, as colourful as possible so that people so that people are more likely to stop in Nairn rather than driving through."
