Date set for Hawick and Denholm by-election

A date has been set for a council by-election in the Borders following the death of a former Hawick provost.

Zandra Elliot, 73, collapsed at a meeting of Hawick Common Good Fund and died in hospital last month.

A by-election will be held in the Hawick and Denholm ward on 22 May.

There will be polling places across the ward - at Denholm, Burnfoot, Stirches, Wilton Dean, Hawick Youth Centre, Bonchester Bridge, Southdean and Trinity Primary School.
