3G approval

THE last piece in the Netherdale 3G pitch project puzzle is ready to be fitted in, following the approval of funding to the tune of £450,000 from Scottish Borders Council this week.

The final endorsement was made at a meeting of the executive committee on Tuesday afternoon, meaning that stage two of the submission for £300,000 can now be made to sportscotland.

If approved, procurement for the project will go out to tender with the work expected to be finished by October.
