Well done Geoff & Annemarie, you now have 50 weeks tae get ready for the next yin!!! K&D

Not as far as I know. There are a lot of things that change over the years. Anyone can set up any game or parade or whatever they want, so long as they convene and run it and fully inform the Presenting Coldstream Association so that all the H&S paperwork and the risk assessments can be filled in and sent to the local council. Also so that it can be entered into the programme so that everyone knows what is on. It means that during Civic Week there is something for everyone for all ages and all interests.
Listening to some of the Principals from other Border Towns (as they all have their own version of Civic Week) and they say that for the size and population of Coldstream it is one of the biggest with the most events put on and all of them love coming to it. Each Border Town puts a lot of effort into their own week and according to the Museum, Coldstreams is the youngest, starting officially in 1951. It is normally the last one of the season and the thursday ride out to Flodden is a highlight of the week which is not only well attended by riders (334 horses this year), but also visitors to the town and locals from Coldstream and the surrounding area.
You could always convene a Ladies Football Match Terry if you run it????

Yours Aye

Keith and Doll,
Oh no (she groans) only 50 weeks to get everything sorted. Must make a checklist (Jeff B what am i missing on my checklist?)! What will we do during those long winter nights??? I know.................. well you will just have to wait and see at Civic Week 2010. Lots of work to do. Geoff has a couple of ideas and we only ever do things to bring a smile to people's faces, so it should be funny and try to incorporate everyone who attends.
Before I forget many many thanks to everyone who attended Geoff's birthday in the Stable Bar at The Besom - he was so overwhelmed and so happy that he was surrounded by people he has met and become friends with in Coldstream and that there were so many ex/former Coldstream Guards with him. The friendly banter (and singing) between 1CG and 2CG just added to the fun and gave the locals and riders a lot of fun listening and watching it all. To one and all a heartfelt thank you.
As for the Sentry Box - Geoff has many ideas about how he is going to use it before next year. So watch this space. Our neighbours have seen it being delivered (many thanks Keith) and are all wondering where its' final position will be. I wonder if Geoff will refuse his mother-in-law entry with her being Dutch, then again probably not the best thing to do??!! - LOL.
Yours Aye
