This advice from the Forestry Commission :-
In light of the most recent Government directive in response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, it is more important than ever that we pull together and do our utmost to look after ourselves and our loved ones. As ever the health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and contractors is our primary concern so we have made necessary decision to close down all our current non-essential operations, except some harvesting sites that provide essential woodfuel and material for other essential products. Details are listed on this page.

If you're able to help fellow valley residents who are self-isolating due to the Coronavirus or are in fact self-isolating and need help getting groceries or prescriptions, then there are a couple of ways you can help or be helped.
On a valley-wide scale, David Pollard has offered to act as a contact point for those "able to help" or "needing help". Let him know (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01450-880397) if you're in either of those categories and he'll do his best to put you in contact.
At a Hawick-level, Caroline Brophy-Parkin of the Salvation Army is coordinating the same for Hawick residents (01450 375075 is the contact number there).

Here is some great news from Stephen Lucking, who has been following and reporting on this issue from the start:
It was a surprise that the decision to refuse the appeal appeared on 23rd December but it made a great Christmas present.
The Andersons are very grateful for the support you have given us in fighting BL2 as am I. I can't guarantee that there can be no BL3 but it does seem unlikely.
Thanks again and all the best for 2020.

Following on from the 2006 and 2017 survey of valley residents, the C.D.T is now looking at the possibility of developing Affordable Housing.
We would like feedback once again from the community in order that we may assess how high the need/desire is for affordable housing within the Borthwick Valley and would therefore ask as many of you as possible to complete a survey returning it using whichever method is the most convenient. We enclose a paper copy with this issue, but it is also available on the CDT website and on-line through http://bit.ly/BWCDTAHSurvey
Although no sites have been identified as yet, we need to establish the community response before committing to a feasibility study and exploring how it may be funded.
