INNERLEITHEN’S Switched On Sunday is just a month away, and shop owners wishing to take part should attend the group’s next meeting on Thursday, November 15 in the Union Club (7.30pm).
The December 9 showpiece is an afternoon where shops in the town open their doors and host a series of events, culminating in Innerleithen’s Christmas lights being switched on - regarded by many as the best in the Borders.
Already the Tweedvale Pipe Band, St Ronan’s Silver Band, Innerleithen Opera, St Ronan’s School Choir and Tweeddale Folk Group will be performing.
There will also be fancy dress and Christmas shop window competitions, the Town Treasure Trail, pump track, pony rides and much more.
Shop owners wishing to get involved can email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to Gen at Smail’s or Lesley from Backcroft.
