"Ms MacDonald, who helps organise Nairn’s annual Christmas lights switch-on, added: “For an organisation to be paying £675 for a one off event is unaffordable. At a time when the council is doing less and asking communities to do more, I think it’s unacceptable to charge them as well. It’s too much. It would be the death knell for the events that people work so hard for. It’s hard enough to get volunteers without having to scrape around for money to pay for what the council used to do."
Gurn Opinion, why do the proposed cuts and charges being proposed by the Independent administraiton at Glenurquhart Road have so much potential to harm communiities? How about the Highland Council's consultants taking a hit instead? Highland Council spent £5.6 million on consultants last year.
