This is the section where we hear what folk in Forres think about their town and their local newspaper.
In the spotlight this week is SCOTT MOORE (32), a plumber with local firm H.W. Moore Ltd. Scott lives in Burdshaugh with partner Bethan and Marley, their one-year-old Labrador.
I was born in Forres and have lived here my whole life, apart from a four-year spell in Australia playing football.
There’s two: winning the Highland League with my home town, and playing at home in the Scottish Cup to the team I’ve supported my whole life, Rangers.
I never thought either would happen but I now have memories that will last forever.
I think the rejection of the Redco Milne project was a missed opportunity as the town needs some real investment to liven the place up again. It’s becoming a real ghost town with people only passing through these days.
I also wouldn’t mind a McDonald’s opening up!
I would have to say my dad for the amount of time and money he spent driving me to Aberdeen for football as I was growing up and also teaching me everything I know about plumbing. He’s been an inspiration to me and continues to be so now.
Family, friends and football. Three things I couldn’t do without.
I would build a multi-sports complex with indoor and outdoor pitches and courts.
The Mechanics and Thistle need somewhere to train during the winter months as our pitches just can’t cope with the weather.
What would you like to see in the Forres Gazette?
A weekly competition to win a meal for two voucher for a local restaurant could be a good idea.
How would you spend a good day out in and around Forres?
Sunday’s are my only free days. They are ideally spent with brunch at the Bakehouse in Findhorn followed by a long walk with Bethan and Marley at the beach in the summer and the woods through the winter.
There are so many nice places to go around the area.
Who would you like to nominate to do this feature?
I think Calum Stuart (Reg) would be my nomination ... he loves a story!
