The hall’s website is constantly updated. Our booking form at https://stboswellsvillagehall.org/make-a-booking/ has been revised and improved, to enable people inquiring about a hire to provide more details of the event they have in mind. Crucially, people are reminded to fill in all the sections of the booking form before attempting to send it, and to keep the page open until it is confirmed as having been sent. All correspondence relating to bookings should be addressed to email@example.com – rather than using our general inquiry form.
We’ve also been developing our St Boswells archive, adding materials relating to happenings both inside and outside the hall. For the latest see https://stboswellsvillagehall.org/pictures-memories/people/ Thanks to Douglas Oliver (chair of the hall’s management committee) and his drone (!) we now have a great aerial shot of the village with the hall at its centre, which serves as the banner image to that page. Further, if you scroll down its ‘Lots more photos” section you’ll find a collection of photos of the 2022 St Boswells travelers’ fair – a well-attended and lively event this year. Horses were seen grazing on the Croft, for the first time in decades; Alastair Minnis recorded this event with a series of photos. Dougie contributed several drone shots, which show the travelers’ caravans and mobile homes gathering – and the large number that eventually assembled. To him we also owe a splendid series of photos of the trap ride-out.
Pictures of old St Boswells fairs can be found elsewhere on the website, at https://stboswellsvillagehall.org/pictures-memories/
Our website aims to serve as an ‘archival hub’ for our village and the surrounding area. If anyone has any relevant archival photos, or indeed any good recent ones, we’d really like to add them to our collection. Contact the secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
