January 2013 saw Nairn's first independent
wedding exhibition. Held at Nairn
Community and Art Centre, it was organised
by Big Bloomers, Fleur Bridal Boutique and
Dress the Day. Mainly focussed on Nairn
wedding supplies, over 36 businesses
exhibited at the event. It was such a great
day that we got straight to work organising
next year's Nairn Wedding Exhibition, to
take place on Saturday 11th January 2014.
What is more, as a result of the event, we
also managed to raise £250.00 for MFR's
Cash for Kids Appeal!!

Big Bloomers Curtis Cup display
Park Street Pete commented on the Gurn this morning:
"While heading up to The Co-op to get a Nairnie noticed the flower shop Big
Bloomers window display, what a fantastic effort which is celebrating The Curtis
Cup Golf Tournament hitting The Town next month what a delight to see that
someone has put a lot of thought & effort to bring a splash of colour to our drab
High Street, maybe the newly elected councillors should nip in to the BB shop &
ask the owner for some advice on how to brighten up Nairn"
Pete is correct, Big Bloomers have made a magnificent effort. We hope to get a
picture of the other window later today, too many reflections this morning
to do it justice. Worth a trip down the street to see this display.

Well done to the owners of the flower shop for getting the ball rolling in Nairn for
their excellent window display for the upcoming event of the Curtis Cup.
Heres hoping the rest of the shops in the High Street will get involved as it would
make a big difference and it would prove that Nairn people are interested in
getting involved. I think i will go across the road and get a Ashers Curtis cake
if theres any left.
the ashers top shop one will be appearing soon :)

Im at the age that I can remember when Nairn once had a great community
spirit when most of your classmates would enter The Nairn Home Holiday Weeks
Fancy Dress Parade with your Mam digging out her old high heelers & frock with a
bit of lippy,& dressing you up as a Wifie, I was to young to understand
by my Dear Mum dressed me up Lady Chatterley with my brother playing her Lover
which won us first prize & hoots of laughter from the crowd & judges, what
was great that every child that entered was given a ticket that entitled them to a
free Morgantis ice cream from their van which was parked on The Links,
The Parade started from The High Street with the decorated floats & the children
some even with their decorated bikes would follow & end up finishing at
The Cricket Pitch with a large crowd gathered on the bank to watch with the
crowning of The Home Holiday Queen with her attendants, today what has the
town got to attract the visitors, sadly very little entertainment so come on the
good folk of Nairn lets go to town & stop bloody moaning which seems to be a
hobby in this town & lets party, life is to short so lets get together & have some
fun & put Nairn back on the map.
During March 2012 Big Bloomers was kindly gifted daffodils by Croy / Dalcross
Parish Church. Big Bloomers sold these daffodils in aid of MFR Cash for Kids
Appeal for CLIC Sargent and on Friday 30th March 2012, Bobbi was delighted to
welcome Jodie McCluskey, Murray the Moose and the MFR team to the shop.
It was really great fun, and Big Bloomers managed to raise £185.00 for the charity.
Big Bloomers would like to thank all those who purchased daffodils or donated
money. I am sure you will all agree, this was a great result for a well deserved
