£500 pledge for Braw Lads’ bunting

GALASHIELS Community Council has come to the aid of the Braw Lads’ Gathering, with a £500 pledge towards new bunting for the town’s annual celebrations.

The donation goes a long way to paying for the £800 total cost of the black and white decorations which will hang across roads during the last week of June.

Kenneth Windram, vice-chairman of the council, said: “It is nice to see the bunting across the town and the community council should support more things like this in Galashiels.”
