The Knight Frank Schools Gala Day on Friday, June 15, will offer more that 1,500 nursery and primary school pupils access to authors and their work during the Borders Book Festival.

This years programme includes Vivian French, Kristine Stephenson, Philip Ardagh, Kjartan Poskitt, Joanathan Meres and Elizabeth Laird as well as free Historic Scotland activities at Melrose Abbey.

Mrs Ogilvie said application forms had been sent to all primary schools and nurseries and she is urging teachers wishing to book a session for their pupils to do so as soon as possible when they return from the Easter holidays.
