Sadly, the VIc is to close its doors on Sunday night

The Victoria Hotel is to close its doors on Sunday night. More bad news for the High Street as the venue, a favourite with local musicians, advertises its final fling. A chunk of local culture, popular with locals and vistors during the summer months, will vanish from the town centre. "The times they are a changing".

What a disaster.
You can't have the Bermuda triangle without the Vic.

Pookie, Vodka Jellies are the available at the Star - a fundraiser for the wee county fans ground improvement fund that has raised over £600 so far.

The Vic always seemed the busiest bar on the High St anytime I wandered past, I fear other watering holes will follow

Sadly this will not be the only closure on the High Street in the next few weeks, there are two definite; Concept Gifts and Ross Outdoors. There are at least two other retail premises rumoured to be going the same way in the very near future. Nairn has done well up till now and escaped the worst now but it looks like we are finally going to feel the impact of the financial storm.
