In light of the pandemic, the Mobile Library Service service is starting up in a new guise, beginning with one Mobile van covering the entire area. The route has been planned to ensure that the needs of individual rural communities are met and allow people to hop on board and choose a book.
This will work on a three week schedule to give plenty of time for you to enjoy your chosen books. While we have been off the road, we have purchased a range of new stock and we are sure that you will find a new and exciting read on board. Your safety is our priority and so we have implemented safety features with COVID guidelines, so please be aware you may have to queue.
The next date for Clovenfords is Tuesday, 13 July 2021 at 11.45 am.
As the schedule may have to be tweaked every now and then, please check the dates on Live Borders website, telephone 01750 726400, or send enquiries to:
Goodbye and good luck to our P7 pupils who have left primary school for the very last time today. Piped out by Mr Swanson, socially distanced and enjoyed by all the children. Wishing all our children and families a wonderful summer break. pic.twitter.com/AuayEC5cGq
Thanks to Caldwells Ice Cream for coming along this afternoon to give every child an end of term treat paid for by the Parent Council with Caldwells also making a donation to the school. Happy holidays everyone! 😄👍 pic.twitter.com/1SCZQCRQw4
Our P7 pupils enjoyed a socially distanced graduation ceremony in our kitchen garden. Huge thanks to Mrs Liddle for the fantastic cupcakes and to all our P7s for being such troopers this session, showing resilience, perseverance and positivity. #TeamClovenpic.twitter.com/IdoGgIAmbP
Today we said goodbye to the wonderful Mrs Forrest who is retiring after many, many years at Clovenfords. She will be a huge miss as she has taught, cared for & championed so many children & families over the years. We can’t wait to hear about all her new adventures though! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/2SHP67mlzo
Thank you everyone for responding to the surveys the Clovenfords & District Community Council carried out recently. The response was very high, and the results will be analysed and discussed at the next Community Council meeting. It was also very helpful to receive all the comments. Although SBC will be conducting an official survey towards the end of the trial period, our survey was very informative for a local response to both surveys.
This has been a year like no other. Bringing difficulties to so many; but bringing out the good in as many. Good neighbourliness and kindness have prevailed around our village and many new friendships have been forged in this way.
A massive thank you to the Angels and all members of the Resilient Community Group who have been active this year; it has been appreciated by many residents. The Angels’ COVID activities were officially ” paused” in August – but many of us continue to support as required.
If you, or anyone you know, needs any help or assistance over the Festive period, please get in touch with us at , or reach out to your Angel, and we will do our best to help.
Wishing you and yours happiness at Christmas and a healthy 2021. Stay safe and well.
Whilst Caddonfoot Parish Church isn’t able to meet in person, worship is being delivered through short video services led by Rev Elspeth Harley, and shared online at www.caddonfootgalatrinity.org.uk every Sunday morning.
Please do have a look, even if you haven’t been to church in a while, or ever. A phone number is also available on request for people without internet access to dial in.
We’re aware of scammers pretending to be the NHS contact tracing service. Remember, you should never give your card or bank details to anyone who calls you. If you receive a cal from the National Contact Tracing Service you can call them back on 0800 030 8012 (wait 5 minutes for the line to clear if you are on a landline).
Unfortunately, scammers are still operating during the Coronavirus emergency 🙁
We have been made aware of a telephone scam received by a local resident yesterday. They received a call telling them that a sum of money (£600 in this case) had been transferred by their debit card and sent abroad. Resident put down the phone and telephoned their bank direct. Bank confirmed that is was a scam but warned the resident that they may try the scam again.
So everyone please be vigilant of all such telephone calls and never give your bank or personal details out over the phone – your own Bank will never ask for those. If in doubt, put down the phone and then ring your bank direct (not using any phone number the scammer gave you).
