St Andrew’s Church Innerleithen is not fully open yet, with only two
Sunday services happening each month. This is currently under
review and it is hoped that the church will be fully open again in
due course. The two services are as follows – 9.30am ‘Communion
Service’ on 2nd Sunday
in each month, and a 9.30am ‘Service of Word’ on 3rd Sunday
in each month. There is also a short ecumenical ‘Morning Prayer’ at
9.00am each Wednesday morning, which is followed by the Toddler
Group at 10.00am.

Maintenance of Jubilee Park - the area
next to the allotments
You may have seen people out cutting the grass on the area during this
period of social distancing.
The grass has now been cut about once a
fortnight since April last year, some areas of wild flowers were left hoping that with time these plants will
help to keep the grass under control. The ongoing task is to
keep it looking the way it is now. In all it's probably about 4 -
5 hours work to cut all the grass. If anyone wants to go out with
a strimmer or mower and cut some grass, please feel free to do a bit.
What is five hours for one person is only 1 hour for five. It's good
exercise for the whole body. Many hands make light work.
Please respect the area which is for everyone's use
and benefit. It is not a rubbish tip.
