A fabulous Christmas lights show in Nairn and citizens DIY decorations on the tree a thing of the past perhaps?

Gurnites will remember that last Christmas several citizens set about decorating the Christmas tree themselves as the Council didn't have the cash to do anything with the bare spruce set up on the Royal Bank grass. 

Speaking at the River Community Council meeting last week Michael Green was enigmatic but he promised a "fabulous" Christmas celebration. He said:

"You will be absolutely amazed at Christmas when the lights are switched on." Michael told the meeting that he will be seeking cash help from the town's community councils to help pay for the event. 

He then continued: "I wish I could tell you all about it but I've got to get permission and I could prejudice it if I told you what it was."

I can see the headline now 'Michael Green lights up the sky'

Shame he can't see that for some Nairnites there are more important issues than a few fairy lights

totally agree with 8:42. While its nice to have decorations, there is more pressing matters to spend money on or is this just an exercise to boost profile.

Please remember do not refer to it as Christmas as it may upset the professionally offended. Its winter festival.

A 'bare spruce' sums up Christmas for many of us, don't knock it till you've had to try it

Does he have a direct line to Santa then or maybe just one of the elves.
Maybe Rudolf will make an appearance.

Oh the suspense that this man has created, awesome individual, should be knighted in the New Year's honor list

This follows on from his his popular beer tent on the links and a call to make it a year round attraction

Great to see something happening. Michael really is the only councillor that you see doing things in and for Nairn..... If the others were to put in the same effort, imagine what could get done!

Aye, Christmas would be cancelled without Michael Green

Well done Michael Green. It is a brave man who actually sets out to do things in Nairn and subsequently makes them happen. For every doer there will be dozens (hundreds??) of moaners, critics
