    The Two Moronnies: One Last Hurrah

    Tim Wilcock and Les Morss are back again with a new long-awaited Two Moronnies show. Expect an irresistible mixture of  political satire, sketches and favourite songs from the likes of Flanagan and Allen, Flotsam and Jetsam and Noel Coward. And is this really the Last Hurrah? Come along and make sure it isn't! Entrance free but there will be a collection in aid of the Eastgate Theatre Peebles. More information from tdj.wilcock@gmail.com or lesmorss@carlops.ne

West Linton Collection for Ukraine Update

Aid for Ukraine Thursday
The Old Church Hall in West Linton will again be open today, 10.30am till 7.00pm, for your aid donations for Ukraine. We’ll pause on 
opening a drop-off point after today and review how we can best help as we move into next week.

For today, please note we’ll no longer be accepting donations of clothing. Still needing blankets, sleeping bags, camping mats, toiletries, 
 ‘over-the-shelf’ medicines, first aid things - bandages, tourniquets, wound dressings etc, torches, batteries, candles, dried food, 
tinned food, thermoses etc, etc, etc

Also, if anyone is heading to Peebles today, you’d be very welcome to pop a few bags/boxes of donations into your car and take 
them the the central Peebles collection point. Please call/text Ian on 07903616032. 

Andrew Macnab at Cavalry Transport in Peebles is confident that all your donations will be safely delivered to Poland early next week.

Thank you again for your support

If you can, please label your bags with the items included (mens/women/children) and sizes. This will massively help any volunteers at the other end.

We’ll call on your numerous kind offers of help to get your donations taken down to the Cavalry depot in Peebles.

Will post details of West Linton drop-off points and times beyond today as the week goes on.

The things most needed are:

Sleeping bags
Sleeping mats
Warm clothes and shoes
(Mostly male)
Hygiene products
Canned food
Bottled water
Anti-inflammatory pain medications
Thames blood

A thank you to everyone who dropped off donations at Sunday’s vigil. Courtesy of Tracy, they’re  already on their way to the Cavalry depot in Peebles for sorting and preparation for onward transport to Poland this weekend.
