Share your views on Galashiels Business Improvement District Project

A drop-in consultation is to take place at the Great Tapestry of Scotland visitor centre on May 22 between 2pm and 7pm.

It will offer participants the chance to learn more about BIDs, their functions, and successful examples from other communities.

Attendees will be encouraged to share their visions, concerns, and aspirations for Galashiels.

Mags Fenner, BID for Galashiels project manager, said: “I would love to see a great turnout on May 22 from both members of the public and the town’s businesses.

“The event gives us the opportunity to share more detail about BID for Galashiels, and gives attendees the opportunity to tell us what they would like the project to deliver for the town. I’m really looking forward to talking with people and hearing their ideas.”

Debbie Paterson, co-chair of the BID for Galashiels steering group, added: “We believe that by coming together, we can create a vibrant and thriving Galashiels that meets the needs and aspirations of all its businesses and residents.

“Improving Galashiels is everyone’s business.”
