Great to meet some of the junior members at Melrose Golf Club last night where we grabbed a quick photo showcasing the new short course tees! It's an exciting time to be a part of the golf club and with (hopefully) some warmer weather coming our way, get out on the course and give it a shot!

Mark Gillie, Junior Convener at the Golf Club, commented "2019 sees the start of a 5 year partnership with Crawford Builders as the main sponsor of the junior section and sponsor of the new blue short course tees.
These will be out on the course from the start of the Easter holidays and right throughout the season to encourage all our young junior members and new golfers to play from.
With weekly junior competitions for the kids to play in as when they can and weekly coaching sessions on a Friday from 14.30 - 16.00 from May its a great time to be a junior member at Melrose and its only £25 for the year.

If you are interested in your child joining us or know of anyone who is please contact our Membership Secretary & Junior Convener Mark Gillie on 07947628280 or markgillie141@gmail.com.

Thanks once again to everyone at Crawford Builders for their support its really much appreciated."

Priorwood in 1966, the building of the garage/workshop has commenced with the excavation of the shale rock and the erection of the steel portal frame. The vehicle in front of the shed is the old “Thorneycroft” crane that my Grandfather bought at MOD Nottingham, it was some machine according to Uncle James. Dick Porteous of Earlston was its operator . Once when building Council housing at Inchmyre, Kelso through the crane’s lack of Boom height it was perched up on Railway sleepers some2 meters + when it started to topple while putting in the concrete stair sections. Dick cool as ever he was ( rear gunner in Wellington bombers in WW2 ) stepped out of the “Thornycroft “and down the sleepers as if he was off for stroll. Credit to James Crawford. ...

I used to groom and exercise Beauty the Shetland pony around the internal perimeter for you’re aunty Eileen - happy memories!

A very interesting photograph

Michael, I was an apprentice on these flats back then in Wullie Noble’s squad. I watched the crane sitting on the railway sleepers from where we were working. A dumper was used to ferry the concrete up onto the building. I can clearly remember “Bobby Sutherland picking up the concrete from the mixer....driving it forward to the crane where the brothers (the four chains) were then attached to the four corners of the dumper. Then we watched “dare - devil” Bobby sit waving to the men on site as he was lifted up to the building by the crane. He said it was easier than running up an down the stairs. He was some man.

Fascinating photo. I grew up in Priorswalk but never knew what lay behind “the builder’s” walls.

Great old photo. How it changed

Great pics great stories .

I worked beside Dick when I left school. I'd no idea he'd been in aircrew during the war

Lived in the house just over the wall

Scotlands jewel, in the moons pale light

Proud and excited to be sponsoring this great local project.

The Trimontium Trust have been running a Museum in Melrose, dedicated the story of the fort at Trimontium, located near the village of Newstead in the Scottish Borders. The main aim of the Trimontium Trust is to bring the story of the Romans in Scotland and the Iron Age people who were living in the region when they arrived, to as wide an audience as possible. The Trust is currently raising £1.3 million to refurbish the museum having secured donations and pledges to date for just over £1 million. The Trust welcomes the partnership with the Melrose based company, Crawford Builders, whose support will significantly help us in achieving our aims. Crawford Builders are based in Priorswood House, where the man who discovered Trimontium in 1905, James Curle was born and grew up.
