The Chairman welcomed everyone to the Special meeting of the Teviot and Liddesdale Area Partnership which was being held to consider an application that was time dependant as the project was due to start in August.

One application for consideration:


(a)  Future Hawick, assessment attached.


The application for consideration was from Future Hawick, who in conjunction with Hawick Cycling Club and Hawick Community Council were organising a Hawick Cycling Festival from Sunday 22 August to Saturday 11 September.   This was to celebrate the Tour of Britain coming to Hawick on Saturday 11 September and to promote cycling as a leisure pastime, a mode of transport and a sport for people of ages.  Future Hawick were seeking £14,471.00 for: promotional materials to publicise the event; to create a display of cycle jersey tops in the town, with a design a cycle top competition for local primary schools; and, to train 10 participants in the Scottish Cycling’s Ride Leader Course.   Ms Jardine explained that there was £98k in the BBBB Fund and this was one of four applications totalling £25k.  This application did not meet the criteria of the BBBB fund due to not having three quotes for listed items of expenditure.  However, recognition was made that it was not possible to seek three quotes for all the items of expenditure and some quotes did include a discount. 


The Area Partnership congratulated Future Hawick on the project and supported the application recognising that the three quotes were not available to be sourced given the timeframe.  The Area Partnership approved the application for funding of £14,471.00 to Future Hawick for the Hawick Festival of Cycling.
