Picnic on the Green

Picnic on the Green

The rain held off for our Picnic on the Green on 25th June (Isobel was right when she said "if we put up the gazebos it won't rain"!)ย 

It was a great opportunity to celebrate bringing the Green into community ownership, catch up with one another and to get to know a few new faces in the Village.

Thankyou to all who attended and to the team who worked hard to rake the grass, dispose of the cuttings and set up on the day.ย 


The lucky winner of the original painting by Shona Lenaghan was Val Miller.ย ย 

Second prize of a signed copy went to Jan Barwick.

Third prize of an Edinburgh map print, kindly donated by The Picture Framer, 1 Lawyers Brae, Galashiels, went to Eileen Johnson.

Thanks to the Gallery, Melrose and Butterfly, Melrose for helping us to sell tickets.

A special thanks to Shona Lenaghan for giving up her time to draw the raffle.
