A makeover for the Nairn portal coming but not in time for Christmas

The site was quite the thing in its day and did the business in 2003 when it was launched.  It was jointly funded by HIE and Highland Council. Over the years though it has only sporadically been updated and as it comes quite high up the google rankings it wasn't the ideal advert for Nairn in its moribund state.
