TARTEN UP: Chil­dren from the Millers Flat School, from left, Mol­lie Hansen, Lola Dun­dass, Emily Perkins and Char­lotte Aber­crom­bie prac­tise one of the easy Scot­tish reels in prepa­ra­tion for Scot­tish Week ceilidh, or fam­ily so­cial night. “Even af­ter two years of telling peo­ple about it, some are not sure what a ceilidh is,” Scot­tish Week com­mit­tee mem­ber Trudi Marsh said. “With the help of two mem­bers from the Alexan­dra Scot­tish Coun­try Danc­ing Group, we are teach­ing the chil­dren in the hope they will en­cour­age their par­ents to bring them along to what will be a fun night of all things Scot­tish.” The ceilidh on Satur­day is the first of many events across eight days to cel­e­brate the Te­viot Val­ley’s third an­nual Scot­tish Week. Tick­ets avail­able from the High­land Phar­macy.
