THE combined clergy of Tweeddale will be holding an ecumenical Thanksgiving Service for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in the Old Parish Church, Peebles, on Sunday, July 1 – the start of Royal Week in Scotland.

Followers of all faiths and none in the lieutenancy are warmly invited to assemble in the Quadrangle of The Chambers Institution at 3.15pm before walking in procession down High Street to the Kirk for the service which begins at 3.30pm.

Those who do not wish to process should go straight to the church where there is alternative access by ramp.

The Lord-Lieutenant of Tweeddale, Captain David Younger, and the clergy have expressed a strong hope that as many people as possible, both young and old, will come to pay tribute to The Queen’s “exceptional contribution” to the life of the nation over the past 60 years.
