06/12/2020 - Christmas Gift Services in Skirling & Stobo

Scottish Borders Young Carers
A chance to gift something to those who deserve better at Christmas, Young Carers in the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh The Old Kirk and Muirhouse in the West Pilton district of Edinburgh usually benefit from our gift collections.    Clearly this has become tricky so we would like to suggest that people purchase gift certificates - you can buy certificates that can be used in several stores.  We can then post them to the two causes ensuring that they arrive safely and in plenty of time to be distributed before Christmas morning. 
Gifts can be handed in or posted to any of those on the contact list on the inside back page of this magazine.  The churches themselves have limited seating so if you would like to attend either service please contact Isobel Hunter for Skirling or Jane Gillham for Stobo, There will be collection points in Broughton Village Store and Skirling Village Hall.

20/12/2020 - Candlelit Lessons and Carols in Drumelzier Kirk

22/12/2020 - A Drive In Christmas
Tuesday 22nd December 6-7pm – Skirling Green
Wednesday 23rd December 6-7pm – Broughton Village Hall car park
Thursday 24th December 6-7pm – Crook Inn car park, Tweedsmuir

We are planning a Christmas drive in event on the 3 evenings before Christmas day. We can’t gather indoors safely but we can use our cars as a convenient bubble and join together in this way. We’re planning carols, readings and songs with live performers and lots of opportunities to join in the singing….all in the safety and warmth of your own car. We might even persuade Santa to drop in if he’s not too busy! 

The events will be for an hour between 6 and 7 on Tuesday 22nd December (Skirling Village Green), Wednesday 23rd December (Broughton Village Hall Car park) and Thursday 24th December (The Crook Inn Carpark). To comply with Covid regulations this will be invitation only but you are all invited as long as you book your parking space before the night.  The programme will be roughly the same each night so please only come to one event and, if possible, try to come to the event nearest your home.  The concerts are free but Peeblesshire Foodbank and Clydesdale Foodbank would be very happy to receive donations. The event is mainly financed by the Windfarm funds.

For more information or to book a car park space, please contact Fiona Burnett (Tel 830408, fiona@glenholm.co.uk).  Here’s hoping the weather is kind and we can make at least some happy memories of how Upper Tweeddale came together to celebrate Christmas 2020
