Huttonian still confined
to camp Lurgi bound. So beyond the capture and release of a little field mouse this morning there are no headlines. Sadly I missed the Poppy ceremony at the Hutton war memorial and the nice little ceremony of 'planting' the individual poppies from butonholes. So I could not judge if these were new ones or recycled.
Some news trickling in about the vote on the schools last Thursday. Burnmouth did better than Hutton and some of the Councillors who voted to keep Burnmouth open voted against Hutton. The Lib Dems voted in favour of both schools as a bloc but the Tories who had said in a schools debate in the Scottish Parliment that they were against shutting rural schools voted for closure with the noble exception of our local councillor Mr F. It is a shame that such an issue has become politicised at the Borders level.
