Councillor’s comments

An article in The Southern Reporter dated May 30 seems to have caused concern to a few individuals in the Hermitage area with specific regard to my comments on the possible formation of a new community council.

I wish to assure the electorate of Newcastleton and district that if my comments caused distress, that was not intended and I offer my sincere apologies.

As one of the three elected councillors, I assure you of my best attention at all times.
