Planning NOW for the Powburn Show 2021!
As most local people know, the Powburn Show is the first of the annual Cheviot Sheep & Horticultural Shows. But, of course, owing to the coronavirus pandemic, it had to be cancelled this year, along with all other country fayres (including the Ingram Show).

Village of Bolton Road Sign Planters installed
Following the installation of the Road Sign Planters in Powburn at the end of June 2020, two well-crafted planters have now been installed in Bolton.

Plough planting: Powburn

She was helped by Noreen Birnie and Mary Wealleans.
