Edrom community council revival attempt fails

A bid to revive a community council in the Borders has failed to raise the required number of nominations.

Edrom, Allanton and Whitsome Community Council was dissolved in May 2009 when membership fell below five.

Following a petition from 20 residents in the area, Scottish Borders Council opened nominations earlier this year to re-establish the group.

However, it failed to raise the minimum five valid nominations and cannot be revived for at least another 12 months.

East Berwickshire councillors Michael Cook and Jim Fullarton described it as "sad" and "unfortunate" that the council had not been re-established.
