Ninety-six-year-old Angus Taylor, pictured, who lives in Kelso, was one of the first tenants of Selkirk-based Eildon Housing Association to benefit from a modernisation programme, which replaces kitchens, bathrooms and heating systems to more than 440 homes in a £2.75million contract with MITIE Property Services.

Eildon tenants are not the only ones to benefit from the contract.

The agreement with MITIE requires employment of some locally-based people who are seeking training or experience in construction or maintenance-related work.
