Community Council

Clovenfords and District Community Council is the most local tier of elected representation, and acts on behalf of the community. It is a voice for the local area, ascertains and expresses the views of the community to local authorities and other public bodies, and carries out activities for local residents.

We hold monthly meetings, where community councillors, Scottish Borders councillors, invited guests and members of the public discuss a range of local issues. All are welcome

Meetings are usually held at 7pm on the second Monday of each month, excluding the summer period. Please check the agenda for the meeting’s location, as this varies throughout the year.



The current members of the community council are:

    • Chris Whitmore (Chairman)
    • Jennifer Jepson (Vice Chairman and Resilience Group)
    • Sheila Turnbull (Secretary)
    • Alison Wilson (Treasurer)
