Selkirk churches recreated a bustling Bethlehem street with stalls, a pony, sheep and chickens in the town’s Market Place on Christmas Eve when Michaela and Justin Blair portrayed Mary and Joseph in the story of the Nativity – the role of baby Jesus was played by Michael Charter and George Hindmarch – and crowds enjoyed carols by Knowepark schoolchildren, bible stories, film footage and making crafts.
