Monday Miscellany - South Nairn to be debated at the Academy on Tuesday night?

Suburban Community Council (The Subbies) have one of their regular meetings on Tuesday night at Nairn Academy. We hear from one of the Gurn's extensive network of unreliable sources that members of the town's two other Community Councils could well be present and the unpopular decision made last Tuesday by the planning committee in Inverness will be discussed. It could be an interesting evening. The meeting starts at 7.30 p.m. and officially up for discussion according to their advert are the proposed Moss-side playpark, the local bus service, Sandown Farm Line, dog litter bins and seagull nuisance and overgrown hedges. With regards to South Nairn, it was suggested to this observer over the weekend that the decision was proof that when it comes to issues of local democracy Nairn lives under a planning dictatorship. Decide for yourself, scroll down the Gurn and see for yourself - interesting comments from Liz included in those articles. 

The former bus station garage is disappearing rapidly and there will probably not be much left by the end of this week. Picture of the demolition so far here.  Today starts off fine and sunny - will the warm weather continue throughout the week? The forecast is a bit iffy but the Moray Firth can sometimes escape the worst. Pictures from Donald Matheson of the sunshine activities on the beach/links and out in the Firth here and here.  Donald also sent us an image of a rather strange sight in the water. 

And the Leopold Street lights - will they be back to normal after the recent visits from the BEAR maintenance squad?  Have a good week Gurnshire - perhaps see some of you up at the subbies meeting tomorrow night.
