Council steps in with grant

TRINITY steps are due to be spruced up to the tune of £2,500 from the town’s small schemes budget.

The work has been approved by Teviot and Liddesdale Area Committee and will see the stairs leading to Weensland Road pressure washed and fixed as well as masonry work repointed.

A new bench on the High Street near the bus stop at Brydon’s has also been given the thumbs-up.

However, Councillor Davie Paterson complained that a £1,200 scheme for goalpoasts in Longcroft Crescent was still not in place, after the council had been advised not to order full-size posts.
