At a recent meeting of the Suburban Community Council, the Chairman Dick Youngson revealed that during his organisation's recent "spring clean" of the area a considerable amount of litter was picked up in the lay-bys along Moss-side Road including 30 empty vodka bottles
Dick told the meeting: " We over the years have spent a little bit of time devoting days to litter picking and cleaning up areas that the Council haven't got the resources or haven't got the time to do. Getting into the worst places, so we've been cleaning the Tradespark Wood up. Although we've also got a team of volunteers in Nairn and they collect daily a lot of the litter which is dumped at night, cans bottles you name it. And we also cleared up the Moss-side Road..."
John Mackie then added that "you wouldn't believe the amount of vodka bottles!" The Community Council picked up 14 bags of rubbish in total, another clean-up earlier in the year in this area had seen another 16 bags of similar rubbish collected.
