- Join us at 11am in Peebles' Burgh Hall to sing at Tweeddale Peace Group's enormous Book sale! The sale raises thousands of pounds for peace organisations. We will be singing 3 of our peace songs we've learnt this term. Many of our choir members have longstanding connections with the peace group and the book sale.
Here's what one of our members Lizzie has to say about it:-
Peter and Juliet (Binkie) were founders of Tweeddale Peace Group. In 1987 we sang Julien of Norwich at a Ceilidh to celebrate the Peace Quilt coming to Peebles with women from Russia and America. Quite a few folk in the Choir were at the Ceilidh. 30 years ago we held the first Book Sale to raise air fares for these East West visits. (This was during the Cold War and in the days of the Iron Curtain when it was difficult to meet people from the Soviet Union).
