Former church site clear

The completion of work to clear the site of a former church at the top of Commercial Road has been warmly welcomed.

And now plans to create a possible community garden where Wilton South and St Margaret’s Church once stood - which was bulldozed around 12 years ago following safety concerns - are due to be pursued.

Councillor Stuart Marshall told the Hawick News: “I am delighted the council has stepped in and transformed this eyesore, and now we need to survey the neighbourhood and look into the possibility of a project that the community can enjoy, and identify possible funding.”
