Yetholm Community Council will continue to meet by Zoom on last Tuesday of month until further notice. A link to meetings will be posted online and on village noticeboards for members of the public to join meetings.
The vacancies and election of new members will also be put on hold, as discussed with SBC, until the present situation becomes clearer.
This means the present Council will remain in post until a date to resume is confirmed.

Yetholm Community Council meets on the last Tuesday of every month - with the exception of December - in the Youth Hall at 7pm. All these meetings are open to the general public and provide an opportunity to join in with matters and debates which directly affect the village. In addition to Councillors, the meetings are also attended by the local Regional Councillor from Scottish Borders Council and, duties permitting, the local police officers. The A.G.M. is held each April at a venue and time as publicised.
There are eleven elected Councillors who serve for terms of three years (renewable). Each Councillor takes responsibility for specific areas of interest (portfolios).
