In partnership with Scottish Borders Social Enterprise Chamber we held a successful Borders Forum this week at Old Gala House, Galashiels.
The event included an update from CRNS on vehicles and transport, presentations from Borders based community re-use & recycling organisations: Home Basics , Borders Scrapstore and Bookdonors C.I.C. and round table discussions before a networking lunch.
It was also great to welcome Colin from Cunninghame Furniture Recycling Project who had travelled from Irvine in Ayrshire to attend and network with Borders organisations. This inter-area networking between CRNS members is great to see and we will be encouraging more of it.
There was an update on Just Cycle Ltd which is a new bike reuse project being developed in the Borders and an update from the Social Enterprise Academy on their latest programmes and training opportunities.
