Fibre Cabinets are coming !

Further to the road closure article, and after a few enquiries with RoadWorks Scotland, we have approximate locations for the new fibre cabinets that are going to be installed up the valley over the next 3 weeks.

As suspected, there are only two that we know of at present :-(

One of them is going to be at Craik approximately where the road (from Roberton to Howpasley) forks downhill to Craik village (near Old Howpasley Schoolhouse). The work there also includes replacing a "faulty" telegraph pole and providing a power supply to the fibre cabinet. According to 1 Craik resident, there are spray paint markings where the cabinet is likely to be.

Upcoming Roadworks - Bringing Superfast Broadband a step closer

Good News and Bad News.

Good News
Over the next 2 weeks, OpenReach will be doing their preparatory work for the pending Superfast Broadband rollout later this year. Probably blowing fibre the length of the valley from Craik to Hawick.

Bad News
This will involve a series of roadworks as detailed in the diagram below.

For the most part, traffic should still be able to pass. However, one  Craik resident has informed us that they have received a letter from Morrison's Utility Services (who are doing the work on behalf of OpenReach) stating that there will be a "road closure on ZU103, Borthwickbrae for 5 days" [from Thurs 24th Jan 2019].

Our Yoga, mind and body class will continue on Thursday 17th January at 6:45. The cost is £7.00 per class with a £5.00 concession for students.

The next Forman Flix will take place on January 25th with the doors open at 7:00pm. The film to be shown is "Murder on the Orient Express".

Red Squirrel network

 

Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels
Thinking about giving something back to nature in 2019? If you live in a red squirrel priority area, you could get involved with a local volunteer group.
Our new Teviot & Borthwick group will be meeting on 9 January at 2 o'clock in the small Hall, come along if you’re local and interested in helping out.

Forman Folk

 

Our next Forman Folk will be on Wednesday January 16th from 7:00 to 9:00pm. This is an opportunity to share tunes and songs, and no, we don't have a trumpet player but we do have a brilliant piper. If you are interested and would like to know more then contact Donald on 880256.
