PEEBLES Citizens Advice Bureau wants locals to raise any concerns they have relating to food in Tweeddale.

Bosses have created a survey to gauge public opinion on cost, choice, access and quality in the region. And it will run for the next month both online – – and at Peebles’ CAB office.

Manager Melanie Nairn said: “The people who come through our doors often talk about how hard it can be for them to put food on the table.

“Cost is certainly a major issue for many, but it is not the only one. We also hear from people who find it hard to access affordable, good quality food locally.

“The Scottish CAB network is running this national survey, and I want to make sure that people in and around Peebles form a big part of the total responses. The results will be used to inform government ministers and help shape future policy on food, so it would be a shame if people here missed out.”
