AFTER being postponed due to the so-called 'beast from the east', the Tweeddale Area Partnership will gather for its next meeting next week.

People and community groups from across Tweeddale are invited along for an informal discussion about challenges and opportunities in the area.

Councillor Robin Tatler, chair of Tweeddale Area Partnership said: "Instead of being a formal council meeting with a strict agenda area partnerships are more relaxed and give local communities a chance play a big part in driving the discussion. Our main theme for this get-together is health care and wellbeing and it'd be great see as many people as possible at the meeting."

The meeting will take place at West Linton Primary School at 7pm on Tuesday, March 27.
