CC bother in Ardersier

This observer knows that things can get heated at Community Council meetings sometimes in Nairn and that there have been one or two incidents that have hit the headlines in recent years but events concerning Ardersier Community Council seem to put the occasional problems here into the shade:

"THREATS have been made to a community councillor to stand down or face the consequences.Sandy Devidge went ahead and successfully sought re-election as chairman of Ardersier and Petty Community Council this week, despite the anonymous letter threatening to expose alleged illegal activities, claims he insists are nonsense."

Community Councils may be the lowest tier of government in Scotland but the passions generated around them can obviously be just as fiery as those coming from more exalted chambers.
