Open day

ANYONE affected by Government benefit changes is invited to an open information day at Philiphaugh Community School on Wednesday (10am-2pm).

Concern over terms such as Universal Credit, DLA, PIP, ESA and Occupancy Tax, and other questions prompted Scottish Borders Council (SBC) to organise the event.

SBC community learning and development worker Rita Docherty said: “People are confused and worried about how they will be affected. It is hoped they will come along and find answers to their questions and what services are out there.”
