Photo 1

"The Rovers were given the old Post Office at Heriot - on the road to Galashiels for a nominal fee of 1p providing they kept in good order, it was used as a base for outdoor pursuits.

Most of those in the photos came through the Cubs and Scouts into the Rovers and met in the halls of New Restalrig Church at Willowbrae Road.
