Youth group’s new home

Innerleithen and Walkerburn Youth Group has a new home in Innerleithen Memorial Hall.

The 30 youngsters who regularly attend the youth group have been meeting in the church hall in Leithen Road, but when it was sold in May a new meeting place had to be found.

Now they will meet in the former Contact Centre and social work offices in the Memorial Hall, donated to the town in 1919 by Henry Ballantyne. Councillors agreed last week that three rooms in the hall be leased to the youth group for £1 for the next 12 months.
