Things to do

In the village there are several facilities and things to do.  You’ll find more information about the various clubs, organisations and shops.  A brief summary would include:

  • shop at the well-stocked general store and Post Office
  • enjoy lunch or coffee time at the café
  • join the bowling club
  • have a game of tennis  (or basketball, or football, or…..) on the all-weather multicourt
  • attend the local church
  • picnic in the park
  • go for one of many varied walks along the banks of the Gala Water or in the surrounding hills
  • try your hand at fishing in the Gala Water
  • attend coffee mornings in the Town Hall
  • join one of many clubs or hobbies groups
  • take the kids to the playpark

More information about these and other activities can be found on the website.  So if you have any suggestions of your own, why not ask us to add them?

    I am currently trying to write up a set of walks around Stow, a slow process, but if anyone else is interested, please contact me. It may be that we have to develop styles or signposts and this would require funding and a more formal grouping.

    Such a map would be a great resource and hopefully get more people out walking. If not on your agenda already, it might be good to speak to local farmers on this, so they can let you know which areas are sensitive to walkers (e.g. where they have pheasants nesting, etc)?

    At a community council meeting some months ago, I think I was told Borders Council is doing something along these lines, so there may be a willing counterpart (and funding) there? Sure the community council can be of help in facilitating a contact (try contacting Gordon Saunders: gordonsaunders@btinternet.com)
