HAWICK Community Council has co-opted four new members onto the organisation.
French Wight, Angela Cumming, Cameron Knox and Gilbert Sangster have all joined the group following two appeals in the Hawick News.
Chairperson Marion Short said: “Thanks to the article in the Hawick News two weeks ago and the supporting editorial last week we are able to welcome these four new members which really is great news.”
The foursome will be officially welcomed onto the community council at the next meeting on June 12, although an informal meeting between them and Mrs Short and the group’s vice-chairman Rob Brydon is to be arranged before then.
Mrs Short said: “We want to update them on the various projects currently undertaken by the community council.”
And she stressed the door is always open for anyone else who may wish to join.
“This does not necessarily mean, however, that further new members would not be welcome and anyone interested should contact myself with their details,” said Mrs Short, who can be contacted on 07549 853549 or email@example.com
