CADDONFOOT Church has been presented with a special banner to mark its 150th anniversary.

Created by CY (Church Youth) and its leaders, it was handed over by leader Trina Bird at a morning service.

Mrs Bird told the congregation: “The children have been working on this since August and we thought that it would be nice to make the presentation at the end of the year.”

The service was conducted by the Reverend Marion Dodd who said: “The church is delighted to receive this and thanks must go to everyone for their efforts.”

Along with co-leader Clare Macfarlane, Mrs Bird and the children presented their nativity play, which consisted of lessons and Christmas carols.

Contributions at the annual gift service amounted to £380 which will be used to benefit the Borders Children’s Charities.
