Regular readers may recall a post earlier this month we drew attention to the proposal to spend a considerable sum of money cladding the Inverness museum and compared the fortunes of Nairn Museum to the facility in the Highland Capital. That article is here.
Since then a petition has been started by Inverness businessman Donald MacKenzie. His petition states:
"Stop Highland Council wasting cash cladding ugly museum to make it a gold-clad ugly museum."
There appears to be considerable momentum building behind this petition and that would indicate it is not only folk in Nairn that think the money could be better spent on other things. The petition is available here and has now been signed by over 3,000 people.
