Eyemouth’s Auld Merket at the town’s quayside hosted an open day earlier this month to find out how local people would like to use the area.

As part of Scottish Borders Business Month 2015, Business Gateway helped organise the event in The Auld Merket, demonstrating the flexible possibilities within the space.

Eyemouth & District Community Trust now lease the old fish market site, renamed The Auld Merket, described as an “inside out flexible community space” to be used for events, markets, training, fayres, meetings in the Eyemouth area.
