The Scotland’s Floral Gateway competition presentations were held last night in Newtown St Boswells. In the Large Village section Chirnside was 3rd. Coldstream came 2nd and Melrose 1st. Chirnside also got a Quality of Life Award for improving the quality of life for people in the Scottish Borders. Thanks must go to everyone who worked so hard throughout the year to allow us to gain the Quality of Life Award and the folks who did the village tidy up and looked after the planters.
