Kenmore Mother and Toddlers Group in Jedburgh raised £100 to buy toys for the town’s health centre waiting room in the autumn of 1994.
Health centre practice manager Ian Duncan told The Southern: “We were badly in need of some new toys, so the kind offer made by the Kenmore mothers was quickly accepted.”
More new equipment in 1994, this time for Kelso High School – though on a different scale. The school’s new music department was opened in October, providing two new classrooms with adjoining group rooms, as well as three practice rooms.
The new department took eight months to complete, and cost £260,000.
