From 10am to 3pm, residents will be selling arts and crafts, baking, bric-a-brac, plants and all sorts of different things from stalls in their gardens to raise funds for the bid to build a pump track in Stow.

Joanne McBeath, Stow Pump Track organiser said, “This is the perfect day to hold our fundraiser for the Stow Pump Track at the start of Bike Week 2021, and we’re delighted that the Stow Cycle Hub will also have a stall on the day, showcasing their e-bike hire scheme.

"They’ll also have E-bikes available for hiring for an hour to get you round the trail.

"You could even arrive by train and bring your own bike.

“During the lockdowns, there has been a lot of house-clearing going on and with no car boot sales at the moment this is a great opportunity for people to sell their unwanted things.

“We’ve got individuals, local businesses and charity groups all taking part in the Market Trail. It will be a great way to explore the villages and find yourself a bargain at the same time.

"The Gala Water villages of Stow, Fountainhall and Heriot have many artists and creative people, great bakers and green-fingered gardeners who are also going to be taking part in the Garden Market Trail.”

Residents with stalls will have bunting or flags outside their houses to show who Is taking part. Maps are also available of stalls at the E-bike stand in the Stow playpark to help your plan your trail.
