Greener Melrose is a Transition group for the area around Melrose in the central Scottish Borders. We have Action Groups active in transport and food. We have conversations on a variety of green issues, give talks, show films and lobby our politicians. We believe there is a Climate and Ecological Emergency and take action locally to combat it, avoiding doom and gloom. We hope that this will contribute to the design of a better and more sustainable future for our community and contribute to similar efforts around the world.
We have two active travel groups – Cycleways which is leading on a new active travel route between Tweedbank and Eyemouth called the Borders Greenway.
Also, eBikes for Borderers (EB4B) which has a fleet of 10 eBikes and one Cargo Bike which we hire out, usually for a month at a time, to introduce Borderers to the joys of e-biking.
