"The Lothian Hall committee would like to give a massive thank you to all who attended and / or supported us in one way or another. We hope this is our first of many events and if anyone wants to get involved, please get in touch with us. We are always looking for new ideas for the hall."
THE PARISH OF CRAILING
The Parish of Crailing incorporates the villages of Crailing and East and West Nisbet and is located in the centre of the northern half of Roxburghshire with Roxburgh parish to the north; Eckford parish to the east; Jedburgh to the south and Ancrum to the west. The area covered by Crailing parish is 4 miles from north to south and 3 3/4 miles from east to west and has Jedburgh as its postal town. The river Teviot wends its way through the parish dividing it into two nearly equal parts.
There are two churches in Crailing
Crailing Community Orchard is a group of old apple, pear and plums varieties that once belonged to Crailing Hall, near Jedburgh. The land belongs to Lothian Estates with a 25 year management agreement between the estate and Borders Forest Trust. The site is one of the most recent community projects being managed from 2005. Local tree wardens provisionally look after the site but the local community have helped with pruning and hedge planting.
The long term vision is to establish a working orchard and conserve the old varieties found within the Borders. The orchard is 0.4 Hectare and is in need of scrub control. Volunteers are always welcome. Visit the Crailing Community Orchard facebook page for further information https://www.facebook.com/crailingcommunityorchard/
The Crailing Rideout is an annual event which forms part of the Jedburgh Callants Festival. The Callant lays a wreath at the war memorial before being presented with a quaich, by a representative of the Community Council on behalf of local residents, in recognition of the honour that has been bestowed upon him. He and his entourage then continue on their way to Nisbet for a refreshment stop.
