Councillor Bob Jack was on hand to officially launch the Melrose Town Trail. This feature is a welcome addition to an already popular tourist town. Commenting at the event, Melrose Traders Association Chairman Douglas Hardie said "we are always looking for ways to enhance the town and attract more visitors. I am pleased to say that this is only one of a number of new attrctions being prepared at present."
We are indebted to Scottish Borders Council who have undertaken this project with considerable help from the local community. Tourism is vital to Melrose and in particular its business community and with much emphasis being placed on walking the Town Trail fits in well with other plans we have for the furture.
