The latest plans for The Crook Inn will be on the agenda for a special meeting to be held at Tweedsmuir Village Hall on Saturday.
Entitled Learning from Others – Vision and Planning in a Rural Community, the aim of the meeting is to draw upon the experiences of individuals, rural groups or communities to inform and inspire residents of the Upper Tweed region and others on the scope for projects that can develop, invigorate and support the community.
Also included on the agenda for the day-long event, which starts at 10.25am, are presentations on revitalising the Ettrick and Yarrow Valleys with Julie Nock; creating a community hub in Eskdalemuir and options for sustaining Upper Tweed.
There is an open invitation to all interested, who should contact Christine Parker on 01899 880 329.
Duncan Davidson, who is chairman of the Tweedsmuir Community Company, told The Southern that the meeting is very important: “It will share the experiences of communities that have tackled some important issues such as community transport, local arts and educational activities, the support of small business, managing community pubs and renovation of older buildings for new 21st century uses.”
