BORDERS businesses are being invited to a pre-Brexit meeting this week.

A panel of concerned bosses from companies across the region will discuss the impact leaving the EU will have.

And there will also be an opportunity for questions and debate.

The meeting at the Buccleuch Arms in St Boswells has been organised by the Scottish Borders Exporters Association.

A spokeswoman for the Association told us: " This is a great opportunity to hear what the experts have to say and to debate with a wide variety of businesses so we can all make positive decisions in preparation for the unknown.

"We are particularly keen to hear from businesses in manufacturing, tourism, agriculture and food."

On the panel will be regional managing director of Mainetti, Jim Hutchison along with entrepreneur and business coach, Phil Morris, as well as a number of other key personalities from the Borders.

Thursday's meeting starts at 6.30pm.
