Are you a good neighbour?

At the April Community Council meeting it was debated whether or not Stow & Fountainhall should sign up to join a Borders-wide scheme devised by SBC called Community Resilience, designed to encourage rural communities to pull together in bad weather.While the scheme is in essence a very positive one, it was felt that we as a community did not necessarily need to be quite so involved with SBC as our hands might be tied in some ways… but what we did think was that, come the next weather crisis it would be helpful if we could have a team to call on. We are therefore looking for volunteers to come forward to say they would be prepared to be mobilised if/when the time came, to dig out paths, clear pavements, help their neighbours/those less able than themselves…You can register your interest to volunteer now.
