The new constitution for community centres has now been issued by Live Borders. This was originally out for consultation in early 2020 but, just after centres had given their responses, the pandemic put everything on hold.
This new version requires one final decision to be made at individual centre level - whether or not the service of user group representatives and office-bearers should be time-limited.
Group representatives have been sent an e-mail seeking views on this matter and responses should be made by Monday 14 February. Once this issue has been resolved, the constitution for Southfield Centre will be signed by the current office-bearers and sent to Live Borders.
It is hoped that normal Management Committee meetings will resume before too long. In the meantime, centre activity is picking up again after concerns around the turn of the year had led to some cancellations of bookings.
