Changes to the site.  Feedback welcome

Hi everyone 

As the site administrator - not a professional! - I have been playing around with colour schemes for the site.  WHY ?  you may well ask.

The answer is relatively simple.

I am attempting to make the site as accessible as I can for anyone with dyslexia or colour blindness.  My research showes that orange, peach and creamy backgrounds have increased readability for dyslexia,  not so sure about colour blindness though.   Yes of course there is black on cream but as someone with a love of colour I would really like to use colour to give our little CC website a bit of zing!

SO - If. you have colour blindness or dyslexia I would love to have your thoughts. input and suggestions.

Is the site readable using these colours?

Did the previous blue colour scheme work for you?  ( I can revert to that) 

I am continuing to research good colour combinations so you may well see more changes afoot.  However feedback on the current colours would be much appreciated.  Drop me a note using our comments box with your thoughts.

Nairn West & Suburban Community Council seeks additional members.ordinance survey type map of Nairn West & Suburban Council boundaries

Would you like to be part of the Nairn West and Suburban Community Council whose general purpose is to act as a voice for our designated area in Nairn?

This involves articulating views and concerns of     local people on a wide range of issues of public concern and making representations to The Highland Council,  other public bodies and      private agencies within their sphere of interest.

The Community Council (CC) category presently available for you to consider joining (applying for) is as a co-opted member.

This category  gives the member full voting rights apart from voting on co-option of members.

There is a monthly public meeting September through to May,  in addition there are Operational    agenda  discussions to discuss new and ongoing topics the CC is working on.  The Annual General meeting is  normally held before the May ordinary meeting annually.

To operate effectively a CC needs a mix of ages, good feedback via the members and a willingness to listen to others viewpoint.  

If this has created a glimmer of interest and you would like to find out more, please make contact via the NWSCC website leaving a telephone number.    One of us will return your call (it may take a few days) and answer your questions allowing you to make an informed decision.   

[There is a wee bit more information on the function of a Community Council on our About page.]
