Scottish Borders Shop Frontage Grant Scheme is available to help you!
Their press release below.

This type of scheme has proved successful in a number of our towns previously and that’s why we have worked alongside key community organisations to develop new schemes to launch this year. We have allocated funding to Eyemouth, Jedburgh, Hawick, Galashiels and Selkirk as these have been identified as priority towns for regeneration activity and we are delighted that community groups in each town have come on board to help direct the funding to the areas of most need and to manage the schemes. Businesses and residents often tell me that that the appearance of a town is vital to help a town thrive and be an attractive place to shop, visit or do business. Often a bucket of paint and minor works can have a huge impact so I’m glad these schemes will deliver just that as well as adding some extra private investment in our townscapes too. I really welcome that it is a range of local groups, at the heart of their communities, that will be helping the Council deliver these projects. Up to 128 shops and properties could be improved as a result, and alongside a range of other projects, such as the Conservation Area Regeneration Schemes in Jedburgh and Hawick and investment in Eyemouth, Selkirk and Galashiels town centres, we will see a real, visible difference on our high streets.

Councillor Mark Rowley
