Update to River Tweed Commission COVID-19 Statement

‘Reviewing our initial statement we continue to follow announcements made by UK & Scottish Governments relating to permissible reasons for leaving our homes.

It remains that until such times as the Coronavirus is under control and subject to any clarifications from both Governments the view of the RTC is that fishing as an activity is not permissible.

The health and welfare of Boatmen, Fishers and their respective families and the wider Tweed Community continues to be our primary concern.

The office at Drygrange remains closed and staff are remote working, any enquiries to RTC should be emailed to  We will continue to do our best to respond to any enquiries. 

If in any doubt about actions to be taken in light of the Coronavirus outbreak please follow the Scottish Government link this provides information and daily government updates.’
