Villagers in Newtongrange are being encouraged to take part in a special event to commemorate the centenary of their gala day.

The Newtongrange Gala Day Committee has organised new activities and events to celebrate the landmark, including the ‘Family Challenge’.

The challenge will see villagers taking part in activities as a family, for example reading at Newtongrange Library, swimming at Newbattle Swimming Pool or visiting the National Mining Museum experience.

The aim is to use as many of the local participating venues as possible throughout May. Pick up a challenge card from Newtongrange Library and return it when your family is finished. Closing date is May 31, the winner will be announced at Newtongragne Gala Day on June 8.
