Tweeddale event to celebrate the joys of nature

The cutting of the meadow, in traditional ways, will form the focus of the event, at Drumelzier, on Saturday September 10th from 2pm to 6pm.

Also next to the meadow there will be an engraving workshop and a demonstration.

At a meeting of Upper Tweed Community Council in August, Vice-President Rosalind Birchall recommended an afternoon festival to members and the public.

She passed a number of different promotional posters designed by the village children.

Ms. Birchall added that the festival is the first and hopes it will become an annual event.

Representatives of the Tweeddale Red Squirrel Network, of which Merlindale is a part, will talk about the project and take guided trips through the woods where a family of gray red squirrels reside.

There will be a bioattack including a platform with ringing birds, bats, moths and butterflies, a bee world with open hive bees, algae, lichens, earthworms, invertebrates and a green wood.

The Destination Tweed team of Tweed Forum Ltd will run a platform and explain the projected 113-mile route from source to sea along the river sharing its nature, history and stories.

They will also share plans to restore habitats throughout the River Tweed catchment.

Destination Tweed also hopes to fulfill its health, welfare and economic development ambitions over the five year period of its project.

The other stands will be operated by Scottish Badgers, The Tweed Foundation, Southern Uplands Partnership, Dawyck Botanic Gardens and Borders Forest Trust.

Food Punks will be on site with refreshments.

There is parking at Drumelzier Village Hall, Postal Code ML12 6JD and coordinates = 55.594282, -3.373495 and signs will take visitors to the festival.
