All Civic Society activities are on hold.  We wish all members well and hope we can overcome this upheaval.  

If there are any members who are self-isolating and require groceries or medication to be delivered to their doorstep then they can access the local aid network by contacting either.

Pre this situation, Berwick had embarked on a new phase of developments.  Construction was underway for the new jetty at Berwick Port and the new Leisure Centre, plans submitted for the long-awaited new Hospital and a major funding bid through the Borderlands Growth Initiative for a new theatre, cinema and conference centre for the Town. 

We can hope that this progress can be continued, and construction work resumed but, as with so many things, we will have to wait and see.  The long-term impacts on the national economy cannot be fully gauged.  We cannot know yet how this will impact public sector regeneration spending and private sector confidence which has been evident in the town recently with housing and other private sector developments such as the recently opened new Premier Inn and the Retail Park which was another construction site about to pop up.
