Welcome to the January/February issue...

Why not start the year as you mean to go on by joining a new club, starting a new hobby, taking part in a class and getting fit and healthy. We have lots of ideas for you within the following pages. Are you looking to promote an event or advertise your business in 2019? Then now is the time to get in touch - we will be more than happy to have a chat and discuss some options to enable you to be seen by locals AND visitors throughout the Scottish Borders, North Northumberland and surrounding areas. Visit our box office and buy tickets for your next night out in the Borders - music, theatre, children’s events and much more. (pg 19) Don’t forget to mention ‘borderevents’ when attending an event or responding to an advert. We would also just like to take this opportunity to wish you, our readers, along with our advertisers, event organisers, magazine stockists and distribution team a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
