19th April 2006:

Residents in the village awakened to the sounds of sirens and were soon devastated to learn that the village school was ablaze.

Fire-fighters tried in vane to save the building but the fire was fierce and it took over two hours to get the blaze under control. The bottom end of the school which includes the gymnasium has been totally ruined.

The repair bill for the damage is expected to run into six figures and Scottish Borders Council is now making arrangements to accommodate pupils elsewhere.
