Welcome to the website of the
"Kelso Laddies Association"
No CIVIC WEEK for 2021
We are sure it is not a surprise to you that due to Coronavirus the normal Civic Week in July has been cancelled.
Please see the official message from our chairman below.
SCROLL DOWN FOR THIS YEARS EVENTS & VIDEOS
We will however get you involved in a few virtual activities so click on the "2021 Events" to the left to see what we have planned. Unfortunate as it may be, we were not permitted to organise any event that involves a large gathering of participants or spectators at the time of planning our week.
2021 SOUVENIR BROCHURE
This fantastic 172 page brochure is just stuffed full of photos and reports from previous Civic Weeks including full details of our 2019 Civic Week and the 2020 Virtual Civic Week.
This is a slightly different style publication than our normal production, but may be the best yet!!!
You will find much more and varied content than you find on the website only, so it is well worth grabbing a copy.
These are available from 5th July at the following shops:
Hector Innes W H Smiths Browns
R S McColl Gorgeous Hair Design Kelso Swimming Pool
Still only £5.00
OUR VIRTUAL WEEK HAS BEEN & GONE
The Kelso Laddie Association were deeply Saddened when we learned that Vanessa Henderson had passed away.
Vanessa was a valued and much respected and loved member of our Committee and will be sorely missed.
She loved being part of and contributing to Civic week and shortly before she died she wrote to me telling me of her illness and how important Civic week was to her and her family and we send our condolences to Ian and the family.
There is a memorial service on Friday 13th August at 12.45pm in Kelso North Parish Church.
Vanessa's husband Ian has asked me to say the family would love if everyone attending wore Blue and White ribbons as a tribute to her, but also Kelso and our Civic week.
Fundraiser for Friends of Borders General Hospital.
The ex Kelso Laddies Club are organising a walk to Yetholm on 24th July 2021.
for details and registration form.
As 2021 starts in perhaps a poorer position regarding Coronavirus than when 2020 ended it will be no surprise that we see the list of festivals being cancelled growing.
Most will be looking at hosting virtual weeks and some isolated events. Please check back to see what Kelso will line up for you to get involved with
