Friends sing carols around the Christmas tree in Melrose.

As ever, Santa was on hand to meet children, carols were sung by the tree, Melrose Pipe Band entertained the crowds...and our photographer Brian Sutherland was on hand to capture all the fun.

Grace McGrath is delighted to meet Santa in Melrose.
