Having bounced round the course in true Mo Farrah fashion, I can report that the course is in good condition and ready for Sunday.
Conditions are officially “firm although good to firm on one section” over the 5ish K course with the same 4 small inclines or 4 large mountain climbs depending on your level of fitness.
Two areas to watch out for is at St Aidan’s drive up to gateway, we have decided to lay a carpet of natural landscaping and at no extra expense to the runners. Second area is the area between Lowood bridge and Waverley hotel there are low branches. If you are same size as Crawfords (High Tower Donald excluded) then you will be fine but might impede those over 5feet slightly.
Priorwood House - also known as Prior's Wood, Priorbank, Prior's Bank - is a Georgian House with an interesting history and even more interesting occupants. It has been in the hands of a General, an archaeologist and most recently, the Scottish Youth Hostel Association.
It was purchased by local house builders, JS Crawford 3rd Generation Limited, in 2015, who currently share the building with Mirador Analytics. They moved into the space in late 2016 and will be joined by other local business once further renovations have been made.
Love the building and video, you are very welcome!
Countdown has begun!!! 9 days to the MS Fun Run . The long range weather forecast looks good, so get on line and register and join in the fun. jscrawford.co.uk/borders-fun-run/ Great prizes up for best fancy dress, and medals for all entrants, Facepainting, BBQ, ice cream and much more. Thank you Alex Martin Photography for these excellent pictures. ... See MoreSee Less

We would like you all to join us in welcoming Josh Loftus to our team as our newest Joinery Apprentice. At 24 years old, Josh has qualified for a 2-year, adult apprenticeship. This route requires the apprentice to complete the same objectives and provide the same evidence of knowledge and skill as the 4-year apprenticeship but is condensed into the 2 years. This does require a lot of dedication and hard work from the apprentice, however having had Josh working here for the last 4 weeks, we are confident he has what it takes.
Josh was born in York but moved to Galashiels when he was 5 years old and has lived there ever since. Before coming to work at J S Crawfords, Josh worked as a Timber Fabricator at Oregon Timber. Just as many of his Co-workers, Josh is a keen sportsman and currently plays for Leithen Rovers AFC. In addition, Josh has played Cricket for Melrose for the last 10 years and is currently their captain.
When we asked Josh what his goals for the future are, he replied simply ‘to become a fully qualified joiner at JS Crawford’. We have no doubt Josh can and will achieve this and look forward to supporting him through this stage of his career. ... See MoreSee Less
Todd is delighted that josh has taken over the role as chief loft insulator 😂
