The dates are now out for the new season of Serenata. The monthly concerts are on Sunday afternoons, at 2.30 in the Eastgate Studio. Each concert offers an opportunity for local musicians to perform solo or ensemble in a relaxed, friendly setting. One of the delights of Serenata is that the music is so varied and full of unexpected discoveries. Singers, pianists and instrumentalists have performed classical, folk, jazz, popular and world music – anything fits in. Performers from primary to pensioners of various standards show what fun it is to get together and play music.
Working for an exam? Serenata is an ideal setting to perform your pieces to a sympathetic audience before playing for the examiners.
Enjoy playing chamber music? Why not get together with friends to practice duets or quartets? Aiming for a Serenata concert will encourage that little bit extra polish!
Singing or playing on your own? We can put you in touch with a pianist to accompany your solos. It’s fun and productive!
There are two concerts this year:
Sunday November 11th. Any musical items welcome but there will be some songs of remembrance to mark the day.
Sunday December 9thwith a traditional seasonal flavour.
2019 Serenata concerts are on:
Sundays January 20th February 17th March 17th.
If you are interested in playing or singing contact Claire Garnett on 01721 740256 email@example.com
or Caroline Adam at The Eastgate 01721 725785
Help fill the concerts with the music you love!

The Community Garden
Our community garden is set in the heart of the community, the garden behind Victoria Park Centre in Peebles.
We run weekly volunteer sessions (Tuesday and Friday 10am – 12pm), with people of all ages, and work with service users from Victoria park centre.
We have activities for everyone, no green fingers needed and are always on the lookout for new volunteers to come and work with us, so please do get in touch if you fancy joining us. We encourage people to take home some garden produce when available. Activities range from mowing, strimming, planting out seedlings, sowing seeds, and watering, there really is something for everyone. Please email Nichole at email@example.com for more information.
We have lots of wonderful fruit and veggies growing, and enjoy trying to grow some unusual things in this Scottish climate. We have aubergines, cucumbers, tomatoes, pak choi and lots of salad in our polly tunnel, along with courgettes, beans, beetroot, potatoes, spinach, chard, kale, onions, sprouts, garlic, squashes, pumpkins, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, radish, carrots, and leeks, in our outdoor beds. Our produce is used in our Cook Kids cooking sessions and are currently supplying the Tontine Hotel, The Food Foundation and Windlestraw Lodge with organic fresh veggies.
Thank you to CCF for supporting this project.
