50K from Common Good Fund to bail out Community Centre?

Our four Highland Councillors will soon be making a decision on whether to bail out the Community Centre with £50,000 from the Nairn Common Good Fund.

Cllr Paul Oldham writes in his latest weekly newsletter here:

"We find ourselves in this situation because directors of the charity revealed to ward councillors three and a half weeks ago that it has been running at a loss for some years and has been relying on draining down its reserves to keep itself afloat. This is not financially sustainable and by the time we were made aware they only had funds to keep going for a few more weeks, after which they would be unable to pay staff so the centre would have to close."

 A lot more about this and other issues on Paul's site here.
