Berwickshire’s transport problems for those without access to a car are the focus of attention for a local transport group.

The local Strategic Transport Board, headed by Berwickshire Housing Association chief executive Helen Forsyth, is holding two public events - in Duns and Eyemouth - so that everyone with a stake in solving the county’s transport problems can put their heads together and try and come up with a range of solutions.

If you or someone you know experience problems with accessing transport in Berwickshire you would be welcome to go along to either of the meetings - at Berwickshire High School on Wednesday, August 26, and Eyemouth High School on Monday, October 5, both between 9.30am and 3pm.

There will be representatives from Scottish Borders Council, NHS Borders,, Borders College and Berwickshire Housing Association.

“We want to hear from you and encourage both young and more mature people of all ages to come and share ideas and think outside the box to work on the issues we have and perhaps come up with solutions,” said Helen.

The events are free and lunch is included. If you require assistance with transport to either event this can be provided.
