Petition appeal

Andrew Farquhar is appealing for members of the public to hand back completed green waste petition forms.

The petition now contains 7,500 signatures and Mr Farquhar has it ready to go to Scottish Borders Council.

Speaking this weeks he said: “I would hate to think folk had taken the time to sign this petition and that their signature won’t be counted. I would appreciate it if any outstanding forms were handed in to the Hawick News office by 5pm on Monday 29.
