The Eyemouth District Disabled Association (TEDDA) have averted bankruptcy after Scottish Water finally cancelled an £11,000 outstanding water bill.
Scottish Water’s business stream division confirmed this week that they had cancelled the £11,000 water bill owed by TEDDA following a burst pipe at their premises next to Eyemouth Leisure Centre in 2011,
Welcoming the news Borders MP Michael Moore said: “I have been working with TEDDA for over three years to make sure Scottish Water cancelled the bill which would have otherwise bankrupted the charity.”
“TEDDA does fantastic work among local people who are disabled and it would have been an absolute travesty to see them fold as a result of this incident.
“Representatives from TEDDA and I have met with Scottish Water and corresponded with Ministers and I am extremely glad that common sense has finally prevailed and the bill has been cancelled.”
