Council heroes

SIR, - As a resident of Duns I would like to say a huge thank you to all the council workers who have worked so hard over the last six weeks ensuring that our roads have been cleared of the heavy snow.

We are particularly blessed in this area and notice a huge difference when travelling and moving into another authority’s area.

I know of men working in the road clearing and gritting department who have had no time off to enjoy Christmas and who have been working incredibly long hours. You are our heroes!! Thank you all so much and blessings to you all for the new year. You deserve it!

GWEN COLE,

Manderston.
