Held on Thursday, February 25, it will see H&H Group’s chief executive, Brian Richardson, introduce H&H staff and the new range of services rural customers can access.

The event, which will include talks on rural business issues and supper, will start at 6.30 pm and is open to all farmers.

Mr Richardson said this week: “The aim is to provide an introduction to the Harrison &Hetherington’s Group of companies, and the services and products we can provide for our Borders’ customers.

“The mart will also provide direct access to H&H Land and Property and H&H Insurance Brokers, whose businesses will have a local base there.”

He continued: “These events really are looking to the future.

“We are committed to building a livestock-focused rural business enterprise at St Boswells.

“With rural insurance, property and livestock expertise on hand, the hope is that the mart will be a mecca for rural business and the rural community.”
