Focus on town council at Probus Club

The meeting opened with the Armistice tribute given by Jim Stirling.

The president, Ray Chlopas, then introduced Hawick Community Council chair Marion Short who explained the workings of the town body. Mrs Short said the council is currently implementing the draft of Scottish Borders Council’s development plan for community councils.

As these organisations rely on voluntary involvement there are openings for local people to take part. Any interested parties should contact Mrs Short or other members of the council.

John Aitkin gave a vote of thanks.
