A good turnout of Nairn’s business community tonight at the Dunbar Golf Club as the revamped nairnscotland.co.uk was re-launched in an effort to sell Nairn’s attributes to the world in an innovative concept designed by some talented teenagers from Nairn Academy.
The gathering listened to short presentations from Sheena Baker, Gemma Hill, Steve Westbrook, Gregor Munro and the Michaels (Bolan and Green) and of course the students from Nairn Academy and their IT instructor Sharon Sharkey.
Some of it was a bit familiar when it came down to Nairn’s pluses and minuses but it was the desire to go forward and “go past the talking into the enabling” which was palpable tonight. In the past it has been easy to come away from such events shell-shocked by “death by powerpoint” presentations as the worthies read the script and the wheel gets reinvented – this time cynicism cells just didn’t stir – it felt good and added to the other initiatives out there in Nairn where a whole new wave of people seem to be willing to step forward for the Common Good of all it may be that we have finally turned the corner and are really heading down the launch pad at last. Much will rest on the proposed Business Improvement District that the two Michaels are driving forward and that one too could be in the skies in early 2017 if all goes to plan.
