A long-serving Scout Master from Selkirk has won a public vote to be immortalised in a mosaic artwork.

Graham Coulson has achieved many things in Scouting and elsewhere, but this is the first time he – or any other Scout leader, I would guess – has been selected by public vote to be incorporated in a piece of artwork.  The work, designed by artist Svetlana Kondakova, is part of her flood defence project.
