Preparations are well under way for the celebrations to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The celebrations will start with a muster for the Fancy Dress Parade at 12.45 pm on Saturday 4 June 2022 outside the Hotel. There will be 3 prizes: for best homemade costume for pre-school, primary, and groups.

Andrew and Heather at Clovenfords Hotel are going to do a BBQ from 12.30 (time to be confirmed).

Thanks to the SBC Jubilee Fund, we have hired 5 games which will be free for everyone. The coaches from the Mini Maroons are organising an obstacle course and there will be a tombola and raffle. There will be a craft stall where crowns and shields can be made as well as a prize for the best decorated cake – one for over 12s and one for under 12s.

Please hand in any tombola prizes at the Hotel before Wednesday 1 June 2022.

Between 4 and 5 pm, the Duck Race will take place at the playing fields on Caddonfoot Road. A programme and duck form will be put through your door shortly so please complete your duck form and put in the box at the Hotel, together with your money (£1 per duck), by Friday 27 May 2022. Alternatively, the forms can be handed in to Mrs Davie at Clovenfords Primary School, via the pupils.

Doors open at 7.30 pm for a Ceilidh to be held at the Village Hall. Numbers are limited, so please get your tickets in advance by contacting the Hall Treasurer: or 07515797629

As ever, the success of these events depends on volunteers as well as attendees so any help given is greatly appreciated. If you can spare an hour, either to set up, during the event, or clear away, please contact Sheila Turnbull on 07484868213 or by email:

We look forward to seeing you on the day!
