It recognises innovation, skill and enterprise in the area in which the old Eastern Borders Development Association was so effective in promoting regeneration in the 1960s and 1970s.

The 2016 award was made to the St Abbs Independent Lifeboat Committee, but the shortlists and award winners in recent years have included other local businesses, community groups, voluntary organisations and individuals.

Nominations are invited from organisations and individuals in the area for the 2017 award.

It will be made to a person or an organisation who, or which, through skill or effort, has made an outstanding contribution in social, economic or environmental fields in the 12 months up to November 30, 2017.
