Call out for community councillors

ATTEMPTS are being made to resurrect two community councils in the Borders.

The Greenlaw and Hume council folded in March when not enough people came forward to form a council.

A petition signed by 20 residents in the area has now been received by Scottish Borders Council asking for an opportunity for an election to form a new council.

There are nine seats on the council community – six for those living in Greenlaw and three for residents in the Hume area.

Nomination forms are available from Blackadder Mini Mart and Romanes Pharmacy.

In order for the council to be reconstituted a minimum of six names are required.

A similar exercise is taking place at St Abbs where seven seats are available and the minimum number required is four. Forms are available from the Ebba Centre. Meanwhile, Duns Community Council has folded because not enough people had come forward when nominations closed last week.
