Please can we invite all your readers to the Volunteer Hall in Galashiels next Thursday where the Big Event will be happening between noon and 6pm.
Galashiels Town Band will perform at the opening and play at intervals throughout the day.
Learning, leisure and living for all adults in the Borders is the topic of the day, and exhibitors from a wide variety of groups, businesses and organisations will be on hand to offer further information to what they offer. There will also be demonstrations.
The afternoon is open to all ages, abilities and interests, and free refreshments will be available.
