NAIRN Business Improvement District has been awarded just over £8500 to make the town more welcoming.
The group received £8590 from the Highland Coastal Communities Fund (HCCF) to replace and upgrade signage in the town, and replace eight picnic tables as well as freshen up street furniture including lampposts, railings, bollards and benches.
The money comes from Nairn’s share of the HCCF, with a total of just over £3 million given to Highland Council to benefit communities across the region.
The funding bid was approved by the council’s Nairnshire committee which also awarded £3500 to the St Ninian’s junior football team for new equipment and storage.
The HCCF aims to support economic regeneration and sustainable development around coastal areas in the Highlands.
It is derived from revenue generated by Crown Estate marine assets.
