Sunday Service – 11th April

Funeral of Helen Furness

We were very sad to hear the news of the death of Helen Furness who served as our organist and choir leader for many years.

Helen’s funeral is on Tuesday at 11am but due to current circumstances attendance is by private invitation only.

Helen’s family has advised ‘We will leave the car park across from St Ronan’s Band Practice at 10.10am on Tuesday morning and drive to Melrose via the main roads through Innerleithen and Walkerburn if mourners would like to come and pay their respects as we pass by.’

The service will be available to view online and if you would like to view the service or to get a copy of the Order of Service please email or phone Ruth Kerr (01896 833994).
