Published at 21:35, Wednesday, 11 April 2012
Mrs Bell, Milliner and Dressmaker, begs to intimate to the Ladies of Langholm and its vicinity, that she intends commencing the above business in that shop in the High Street presently occupied by Mr Rickerby Tailor, & c., at the term of Whitsunday first.The contracts, amounting to £1069 for the building of a public hall for Canonbie towards which the Duke of Buccleuch has subscribed £300 and provided a site, have been let as follows, subject to usual confirmation-: Mason Work, Mr W. Hyslop, Langholm; joiner work and seating, Messrs J. Telford and Sons, Langholm; plumbing, Mr A. Stewart, Langholm; slating, Messrs J. Murray and Sons, Newcastleton; painting, Mr M. Hyslop, Langholm; plaster work, Mr James Bell, Langholm; iron work, Mr John Bell, Langholm. There was a good attendance of members from Newcastleton, Canonbie and Langholm at the annual general meeting of the Langholm Homing Society.Raw sewage from the New Town side of Langholm has been running into the River Esk at its junction with the Wauchope and quick action has been taken to rectify the problem.
MILLINERY AND DRESSMAKING
Mrs Bell purposes going to London, & c., early in May to select her stock, and in the meantime will be happy to receive orders or commissions from any lady who may favour her with them.
CANONBIE PUBLIC HALL CONTRACTS
The site is at Bowholm, and the hall will seat over 400. Ante-rooms are also provided.
LANGHOLM HOMING SOCIETY
The financial statement showed a satisfactory balance and it was decided that subscriptions and entry fees be the same as last year.
In view of a likely increase in entries it was decided to purchase two new Club panniers.
The 1962 programme will again be flown in conjunction with the Solway Federation and commence on Saturday, 21st April, with a race from Lancaster, continuing each Saturday until 9th June when the liberation point will be Christchurch.
Following this Open Federation and National races will be flown from Guernsey, Dol, Rennes and Nantes.
The young bird season commences with the Lancaster race on 4th August and ends with the Federation Open event from Worcester on 15th September.
A Young Bird National race from Cheltenham on 7th September completes the programme of Open events in which local competitors had several notable successes last year.
SEWAGE RUNNING INTO RIVER
The cause was a broken sewer pipe where it crosses the river and the damage has probably been caused by abnormally high waters or a tree being washed downstream.
The region’s workmen moved in first of all to divert the sewage into another pipe and local contractors Thomas Graham and Sons have had to partially dam the river to divert the water flow and allow them to replace the old pipe with a new one.
Comment has been made that the pipes now visible to the passer-by were once completely covered up and that had the situation been maintained, then this current problem would never have arisen.
