Stalwarts honoured by Braw Lads

TWO stalwarts of Galashiels were made life members of the Braw Lads’ Gathering last week.

Former council leader Drew Tulley was honoured for his services to the town, while ex-clerk Marian Keith, who was 1963 Braw Lass, was thanked for her efforts with the festival over the years.

They join the likes of town crier Jim Amos, ex-presidents Colin Playfair and Gordon Keddie, and musician Chris Achenbach on the life members list

Braw Lads’ chairman David Houston said: “Both are worthy recipients.”
