Xmas arrows

ETTRICK Forest Archers are holding their annual Christmas Fun Shoot on Wednesday at Thirladean.

It is hoped weather conditions will ease enough for them to be able to conduct the clout part of the competition in the field, while allowing sanity to take over by shooting the target section indoors at Laidlaw and Fairgrieve’s old yarn store.

Fancy dress is optional, although wearing clothes of some description is not only recommended, but also expected.

The fun starts at 11am and volunteers to set out and strike the field will be most welcome.
