Tweed Forum "delighted" with Ministerial visit

"We are delighted that the Minister took the time to see the restoration work going on the Eddleston.

"This is just one part of a long-term effort to restore the river and its catchment and measure the effects this has on reducing flood risk.

"Working with farmers and land owners we have brought about out wide scale planting of native trees in the headwaters, built flow restrictors and log jams, created wetlands and improved river habitats, including re-meandering and enhancement of the main river."

– Luke Comins, Director of Tweed Forum
