Over 250 children enjoyed our annual mini festival around the pitches of Melrose last Sunday.

It was a fantastic day for not only the Melrose mini hornets who were involved, but the opposition teams who come from as far as Glenrothes.

A big thank you must go out to everyone who helped #MakeItHappen including all the coaches and mini committee members, Tesco (Galashiels) for donating the fruit and J.L (Bakery) Ltd. The Lauderdale Scout Group for the loan of the gas stove and equipment we needed to provide hot food on the day.  

We must also thank St Mary’s school for the use of their pitches, and to the parent reps for each age group for organising volunteers. Most importantly the volunteers themselves who helped set up, serve food, ran errands, made cakes and soups, tidied up and everything in between!

Thank you for your help in making it a successful festival of mini rugby!
