Travelodge has announced it's planning to build a new hotel in Galashiels, which would be the town's first branded hotel.

The company is looking at 21 sites across Scotland.

If it was to build hotels in all of these locations, this would represent a £100 million investment, and could create 400 new jobs across the country.

A Scottish Borders charity is set to receive £150,000 from the Big Lottery Fund Scotland.

The money will help expand their services for women with post-natal depression.

PND Borders, in Galashiels, will be able to open creche facilities and provide more therapeutic events.

It's hoped it will help 165 women over three years.
