Innerleithen and District Community Council is looking for new members to fill six vacant seats.

Nominations open tomorrow and if more than six names are put forward a ballot of local electors will take place.

Returning officer councillor Gavin Logan said: “Innerleithen and District Community Council has been part of so many successful projects in the area - they really are a credit to the community they serve.

“New members always bring new ideas and ways of working with them and they keep groups, like community councils, invigorated.

“I urge local residents to put their names forward to join the community council and contribute to the ongoing success of this organisation.”

Nomination forms are available from, or from Ruth Kerr, Innerleithen CC secretary, at 2 Waverley Mills.

Completed forms should be placed in the ballot box in Innerleithen Post Office by midday on Thursday, August 8.

Depending on the number of valid forms received, the new community council members will be announced on Thursday, August 15.

The community council area covers from Blake Muir in the south to Leithen Hopes in the north.
