It’s spring so time for a spring clean!

As we hurtle towards what we hope will be a very busy tourism season for our town, it’s important we make sure it’s spick and span.

Nairn Connects BID does what it can – one of our most impactful investments are the hanging baskets which bring bold splashes of colour to many areas of the town.

But what else?

We work closely with the local councillors and waste team operatives to make sure our town is spotless. It’s not easy and does seem like an endless but important task.

We have had many discussions with the council about the fact it is their job to keep the streets of our town clean. We do lobby them and take them to task if need be!

They have promised things will get better, but also asked for our help. The best way for the council to tackle issues, is if they are reported. The power of the people does work. The council can’t fix what they don’t know about. And, do you know what, reporting issues, whether it be dirty alleyways, dead seagulls or mucky streets is really easy.

Reporting the issues this way enables them to pass the concerns onto the relevant teams, keep count of them and spot any patterns. It also means, with a record there is accountability, which gives us grist to our mill when campaigning, so do your bit and report any issues.
