After a break of two years, we’re pleased to be holding our Fresh Start Borders AGM 2022 at our premises – Unit 9B, Tweed Mills, Dunsdale Rd, Selkirk, TD7 5DZ – on Wednesday 25 May at 7pm. All welcome.

From Dunsdale Rd, turn in at Lochcarron/Tweed Mills Business Park; we are on the 2nd row of units behind Lochcarron.

We’re delighted to be able to thank our Web Host and Domain Registrar, Kualo, for agreeing to provide future hosting of this website for free, under their Free Charity Hosting by Kualo arrangement.

We have upgraded our website, replacing the fixed-width theme with a new fluid layout that should make it easier to view and interact with on mobile devices, particularly smartphones. It also means that these news items can be subscribed to by RSS.

We have received a £200 donation from the Asda Green Token Giving programme: we were runner-up in the online vote for Asda Galashiels. Huge thanks to whoever nominated us and everyone who voted for us!

Our volunteers have been keeping busy making up emergency home starter packs throughout the pandemic.

Current Covid-19 restrictions and limited storage space mean that we can only receive donations on Wednesday mornings from 10-10.30am and only take certain items at the moment: Kitchen equipment: casserole dishes, saucepans, frying pans, tumblers, cutlery and tea towels. Bedding: double bed linen only please.
