FORMER Provost Myra Turnbull is said to be recovering well after a bad fall in the council chambers last Wednesday night.
Mrs Turnbull fractured the top of her femur and underwent a partial hip replacement at Borders General Hospital.
She was due to be transferred to the Community Hospital yesterday afternoon.
Her grandson, Ross Irvine, said: “Granny is on the mend. She was just getting up from her chair, caught her foot in the carpet and fell over.
“She’s in a lot of pain, but she’s had a lot of nice messages and cards and she’s very thankful to everyone for their support.”
