Gaelic lessons

Faultless pronunciation of Buachaille Etive Mòr may not be a life skill everyone aspires to, but Gaelic in the Borders is hosting a learners’ day on Saturday, March 24, at Melrose Parish Church.

There will be classes for various levels, including beginners. A singing workshop may be on offer for the last session.

Mary Low, of Gaelic in the Borders, said: “At just £15, it is excellent value and we can often offer help with transport or child-care costs.”

Registration is from 9.30am and the day runs from 10am to 4.30pm. Phone 01573 450273 for more information.
