A new bandstand built in Hawick park as part of a multi-million pound regeneration project has been named after a former provost.

Zandra Elliot served as councillor for Hawick and Denholm from 2007 until her death last year.

She was one of the driving forces behind the £3.64m renovation of Wilton Lodge Park.

The bandstand was unveiled on Sunday by current provost Stuart Marshall.

The councillor said: "Zandra Elliot was a lady who lived and breathed the whole regeneration project at Wilton Lodge Park and working closely with her for many years, I know how passionate she was about having the bandstand in the park.

"She was a provost three times for the town and she worked tirelessly for Hawick so I can think of no better person to have this dedicated to."
