Murder in Nairn - 10 years on and still no resolution

Later this week, on 28th November 2014, will mark the the 10 year anniversary of the murder of banker Alistair Wilson on his doorstep in Nairn; to date the murder remains unsolved and, at least publicly, there is no information about what the motive may have been, far less who may have committed the murder.

Police Scotland, according to this BBC News report, are expected to make a further appeal for information from anyone who may be able to provide it, with a view to making material progress in apprehending the murderer.

You can visit the page for this unsolved crime in the Police Scotland website here:

Anyone with any information in connection with the murder of 30-year-old banker Alistair Wilson should contact Police Scotland on 101, or Crimestoppers in confidence and complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.
My most recent previous article on the murder is here. There are links to all my posts on this murder, so close to where I live, in the right-hand column under the heading 'Murder in Nairn' articles.

Nairn - Highland Council refuse collection schedules - 2014 to 2016

(Please see UPDATE at end)

You can download a calendar of the refuse collection schedule for your street/area within Highland Council by visiting its website here. Enter your area/town by clicking on the drop-down menu in the "category" box and your town and/or street name (leave out 'street', 'avenue', 'terrace' etc, insert only the actual name) in the "keywords” box. Once you find your area, you can download the collection schedule, which will be in .pdf format. Currently available are refuse collection schedules for the period April 2014 to March 2016.

NB/ My earlier article in July 2011 (link here) has somewhat more detail, although of course the refuse collection schedules embedded there are now out of date. Since then, Highland Council has reorganised its website considerably and the way this information may be found has changed, as described above.

UPDATE (Wednesday 25MAY2016 13.35 CEST/BST+1) - Refuse collection schedules for the period April 2016 to March 2018 are now available, link as shown above, or you can visit my later article written today here.
