River Community Council had been asked to give £100 to the proposed Jubilee celebrations in Viewfield in June. Tommy Hogg the Chair of the council was only prepared to give £100 if another £100 was given to help feed those families in Nairn that are having to rely on hand-outs in these troubled times. Tommy was forthright and passionate in his belief that a donation to what he termed a "hooley" should be matched by similar to ongoing efforts by Steven Manders of the URC and the Blytheswood organisation to feed those in need.
The other members of River CC agreed tonight at the organisations meeting in the community centre. £100 will be going to the Jubilee celebration committee and another £100 to buy food for the less fortunate in our community.
