Community Council

Crailing, Eckord and Nisbet Community Council is a legally recognised group of local people with an interest in their community. The main role of the Community Council is to represent its local area, to consult with local residents, and pass their views on to public sector organisations such as Scottish Borders Council, NHS Borders and the Scottish Executive. We are particularly keen to improve local amenities and facilities for the benefit of our residents and to develop community relationship between the three villages.  Click this link to view Boundary Map
Meetings are held approximately six times per year alternating between the village halls in Crailing and Eckford.

We currently have vacancies for 2 representatives for the Crailing area and 1 representative for the Eckford will be standing down at the AGM, so we are seeking keen residents to take these places. It is an exiting time in local community council work as the intention of both the Scottish Government and Scottish Borders Council is to increase the input of local people to determine the future of their communities (or “local places” as they are being called). Do have a good think and if you feel you can make a contribution get in touch for an informal chat on cencomms@hotmail.co.uk

Current & Recent Projects

Nisbet Churchyard Restoration Project
An application for funding via the Nisbet Initiative Collective was submitted to the Localities Bid Fund to enable the Nisbet Churchyard Restoration project to proceed.  Thanks to local support this bid was successful and the project is currently being implemented. Delays have been incurred due to Covid Restrictions but this matter is still very much in-hand and will continue as soon as circumstances allow.


Eckford Community Patha circular route of around 1.09 miles, starting and ending in Eckford has recently been upgraded thanks to a grant from the Fallago Environment Fund. It is now accessible in all weathers and will shortly have benches added along the route to enable locals and visitors to take advantage of the fabulous views.
