SBC workers do Braw job

While we, as a family, respect all the common ridings around the Borders and like to see the various events, we do not think council workers should be involved in all the preparations for the Braw Lads’ Gathering.

All the other towns prepare for their big days mainly on their own, whereas Galashiels calls on the parks department to organise all their wreaths, flowers etc.

This is not what our council tax is meant to be spent on and I feel it very unfair that the Braw Lads’ Gathering committee expects our council workers to do this.
