Huttonian was intrigued to see the Duns Christmas tree and the rest of the festive decorations being taken down early last Sunday morning. Sunday? How much overtime for the SBC workmen* might this mean-can't they do it in working hours ? etc etc Faff Faff.
But not the council it seems in this instance :SIR, - May I, through your columns, thank the group of men in Duns called ‘The Erection Section’ who are responsible for putting up all our Christmas lights and decorations in the town centre - what a fantastic job they do.
It is not the council, as many visitors to Duns assume, who are responsible for putting up the lights but local men who give up three consecutive Sundays to put them up and then another Sunday in January to take them down. They also spend time throughout the year repairing the lights and getting them ready.
These are also the boys who, along with their helpers, put up the Duns Summer Festival flags as well.
We appreciate you boys and it was a fantastic show. Well done!

So well done the community minded Dingers. Reiver, Reiver's Lass, Right hand man and now the Erection Section. A group of men the writer states. Indeed .Well might they boast that their
collective erection lasted a good three weeks
* Council Workmen used to be an example of an oxymoron. Lke Military Intelligence.
