Work is underway on a new £750,000 artificial pitch in Selkirk.
A turf cutting ceremony kicked off the construction of the 2G pitch, which is being built next to Selkirk High School.
It's hoped the pitch will be finished by August, and will allow pupils and the public to play a variety of sports, in weather conditions that would ruin a grass pitch.
The pitch is being funded by Scottish Borders Council and Sportscotland, and it'll be managed by Borders Sport and Leisure Trust.
Scottish Borders Council funding
I’ve looked forward to this day for a long time. As a council we are committed to investing in improved sports facilities and this pitch will make a huge difference.
