Well midweek for me started with the boiler at home springing a leak but that won't stop me from enjoying the weekend. Off to Berwick on a Friday with Gordon to see what we can see. We are aiming to get to Ayton for 11am to visit the Hemelvaart pub https://www.hemelvaart.co.uk/find-us. It's a beer cafe and I've wanted to have a look for a while, on Friday there is a Northen Edge Coffee take over. Northern Edge are a small coffe roaster in Berwick.
"Wear it pink / Wear it blue (breast cancer / prostate cancer) charity coffee morning with Northern Edge Coffee this Friday from 10am! Come along and 'meet the roaster' and enjoy a delicious coffee and homemade cake in exchange for a donation."
We will then head to Berwick garden centre to pick up some Jarvis Pickle pies for lunch and then onto a boat trip up the tweed, The Evening entertainment will be Ian MacMillan and Tony Husband in the Guildhall. We will no doubt have a few beers inbetween.....
when Saturday comes....
Saturday is game day, I've already got my £1 bet on Berwick to win. There's lots going on for this game. Ladbrokes film crew at the game on Saturday. Ladbrokes are sending down a film crew to interview fans and officials at Saturday's game against Montrose for a piece intended to be shown on their Football Show on Facebook Live and also shared out on social media They will be in the Black & Gold and then inside the turnstiles so we might have a bit of a chat with them. Tom Maxwell is a guest at Saturday's match with Montrose and will be selling & signing copies of his book in the Club Shop. Gordon bought me a copy of the book for my Christmas and it turns out Tom went toschool with my wife Ruth.
