Residents in Hawick are calling for a long-term solution to flooding in the town, seven years after it was last badly affected.
In October 2005, houses and businesses were destroyed by water seeping in.
Townspeople have the chance to choose a flood protection scheme next week, when the council holds a public exhibition.
Jimmy and Wendy Paterson had to rebuild most of their home following flooding in 2005.
The exhibition will be held at The Tower Mill on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 July.
Scottish Borders Council have released a statement, explaining why it has taken so long to get such a scheme underway.
