A Glimpse of Blue Sky?
Huttonian's attention has been drawn to the front page of this weeks Southern Reporter
-an article headed 'Three Primaries axed in first round of cuts'. Scottish Borders Council leader David Parker is mentioned as hinting that proposals to close Hutton, Eccles/Leitholm and Roberton (near Hawick) could be amended 'as a result of the vehemence of community protests' Funny that the Berwickshire
, much closer to the action' did not pick up this reference. Strange also that there is no mention of Burnmouth whose action group put up a very strong performance at the formal 'consultation' meeting last Tuesday. One Councillor was allegedly moist eyed as the children spoke up for their school. Whether these were tears of genuine emotion or the sort favoured by a crocodile remains to be seen.
