Clubs and rurals: Teviothead events round-up

The annual sheepdog trial, organised by Upper Teviotdale Pastoral Society, will again take place at Whitchesters Farm this year by kind permission of Forest and Mary Irving. The event will be held on Sunday, August 30, with entries on the field from 8am. The judge is Mr J. Mitchell from Broughton. This is always a great day’s spectating complemented by good hospitality provided by Alpha Animal Feeds.

Entries for Teviothead Show on Saturday, September 19, close on Saturday, August 30, and can be forwarded to Mary Irving or Anna Hislop.

There was a good turnout of locals at the hall barbecue on Saturday when chairman Sandy Fleming presented 2015 Cornet and local lad Gregor Hepburn with a Sandy Milligan picture as a memento of his year.

The afternoon teas continue on the first and third Thursday of the month and all are welcome between 2-4pm in the hall.
