Yesterday this observer had a useful day out in Edinburgh attending an event sponsored by Creative Scotland which turned into a bit of a blogger/#hyperlocal content meet-up. It was a fascinating experience but more about that today perhaps if time permits. We had a particularly stimulating chat with one of the folk that contribute to Greener Leith. It will come as no surprise to learn that Dog Poo is not only a problem in Nairn. In Leith citizen activists are going about the business of targeting the offenders with home-made advertising. The posters and stickers in Leith are reminiscent of similar ones that went up in Nairn in 2008 and also of the more extreme method preferred by one local resident. Time for Nairnites to get creative again too and/or just simply steal the designs from Leith?
Note to all the local election candidates - whoever comes up with a decent policy to stamp out (mmm) doggie jobbies in Nairn will be onto a winner.
