Provost Laurie Fraser tells us that he will be taking his bike out to the Farmers Show on Saturday 1st August - he has responsibilities to fulfil at the Kinnudie Farm site and then has to get back into town for the World Orienteering Championships opening ceremony on the Links.
There will be a massive influx of thousands of visitors and competitors, road closures in the Fishertown area and nearby areas to facilitate the competition and with the traffic heading away from the Nairn Show too it will obviously be very busy on the A96 and other Nairnshire roads. Laurie is convinced a bicycle will be the best method of transport to enable him to perform his civic duties in both locations.
Signs have now gone up warning residents which roads will be closed on the 1st of August and the Links car park will be closed for a period that will stretch over three days - see image above. The Scottish 6 Days event will also be running over the period of the Championships and they warn folk that there will also be closures out at Darnaway on the 5th and 6th of August - details here.
