Southdean in the know after funding

HAWICK’S elected members have unanimously approved an application for funding to the value of £1, 598 from Southdean Community Council.

The cash had been requested in a bid to purchase a new community noticeboard which will be fixed to the exterior of the village hall, giving people more access to information.

Councillor Stuart Marshall commented: “I think this application ticks all the boxes of what the Community Grant Scheme is all about, and it will benefit the Southdean community greatly.”
