Ewen Brodie, Lord Lieutenant of Nairnshire was present in the Lethen Hall for the meeting of the Auldearn CC on Wednesday night. He revealed that efforts to get a Nairn boat in the mammoth flotilla that will sail down the
Auldearn looks up for the party however and those present were all for something during the day and also an event in the evening. Ewen reported that Cawdor “has certainly got the bit between the teeth" and that the estate were organising a bonfire on Cairn Maol up by the Clunas Dam.
Liz told the meeting that Suburban CC were organising a picnic lunch down on the Links. There was also mention of the Scouts also organising a bonfire on the beach.
Liz also added to comments expressed about the last Jubilee: “That was all the Rockabilly times and the Beatles were in Nairn…there was lots of really exciting music at the time.” It looked to this observer as though Liz was going to suggest some sort of flashback concert but there were then some comments about historical accuracy concerning the Jubilee.
Iain Bain intervened: “There was not TV in Nairn at that time,”
“Not even a TV, not even in the posh houses?” Asked the chair of the meeting.
This time round, there will be plenty of TVs to watch events and maybe some people will even drag themselves away from the box and go to a picnic or a bonfire?
