At the regular meetings of the West and Suburban CCs on Tuesday night in Nairn Academy Cllr Liz MacDonald announced that new equipment was destined for the Links, she explained:
"This is money that was left over from our discretionary budget last year. The four Nairn councillors at the time, when Colin was here, actually as well, we agreed with the steering group from Junior World, from First Steps and from parents that were present – at a stake holders group meeting – that this was equipment that we would be putting in and hopefully it will be in before the summer. So it will be three trampolines, a multi-gym, some springy sit on things, refurbishment of the swings and games panels as well. So this is all new equipment going down...”
Liz was asked by Graham Kerr of West CC: “Is that beside the paddling pool?”
“It’s beside the paddling pool and roundabout it, on the grass areas beside it [...]"
Liz added a little later: “It was an end of the year thing to use up our budget, so we had to make our decision quick so we could buy any equipment and then it will be paid for getting installed this year under the community services budget for new equipment.”
