Lib and Jim Windram- Lib is always a name I see volunteering when something needs done in the community offering her time and skills where needed. Jim whilst out dog walking in all weathers on his hands and knees weeding and removing slime from the steps at the ice plant at Gunsgreen basin, remarkable how much of their own time they give up to enhance our wee town worthy nominees, lots of us love living in this town but not many have the time to give, they are remarkable couple. She and Jim care for neglected parts of Eyemouth and I feel they should be thanked.
