All roads lead to the Langlee carnival

One glorious Saturday each year, the residents of Langlee come out in force to show just how a community should be.

And this year, organisers of the annual carnival got it just right.

The fun started at the new primary school at 10am, where the judging took place for the fancy dress, before they paraded across the length of the housing estate to reach the community centre for a day full of fun, games and music.

Organiser Heidi Wilson told us: “The whole day was absolutely amazing.

“Our live bands, Dylan Paterson and the Moonlands, were superb, there was a great display of gymnastics by PHD Fundamentals, and cooking demonstrations by the Food Punks.”

There was also music from the Galashiels Ex-Service Pipe Band, a huge choice of trade stalls, plenty of fairground fun and facepainting.
