The next step in ensuring that the permanent home for the Great Tapestry Scotland is in the Borders has been taken by Scottish Borders Council.

Councillors have voted overwhelmingly to draw up a business case for the tapestry to be displayed in Tweedbank Station.

David Parker, Leader of Scottish Borders Council said: “The Great Tapestry of Scotland is a very special and unique work of art. It will become a treasured historical Scottish masterpiece and has the potential to be a very significant visitor attraction.

“Its location at the Tweedbank Station will afford many visitors a fantastic opportunity to take the train to the tapestry and also to view other Borders attractions.

“We are at an early stage of the project’s development but I can see no reason why we can’t deliver something very special for the Scottish Borders.”
