THE latest chapter in the life of Peebles has gone to print.

Following the success of Peebles & its People published back in 2003, the Royal Burgh of Peebles Callants Club have returned with an updated edition to hit the shelves in time for Christmas.

Dozens of well-known faces feature in the colourful slice of local social history.

Chief Callant Craig Lusk is delighted with the updated version.

He told the Peeblesshire News “The team who worked on the book certainly put a shift in as our deadlines were extremely tight.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who were involved.

"It has been a great effort and the end result is a fabulous snapshot in time of the people who help make our town the wonderful place it is.”

Callants Andrew Williamson, Russell Copeland and Stephen Mathison were the driving force behind the new Peebles & its People book.

Photographer Stephen produced more than half of the images with the rest of the colourful photos contributed by Brian Henry, Margaret Jamie, Ruth MacLellan, Jim Murdoch and Dave Graham - who are all active members of Peebles Camera Club.

The layout of the colourful publication was done by Elmbank Printing.

And it was transcribed for print by Virtual Office Scotland with Caledonian Printers completing the printing and finishing.

As well as featuring many well-known local businesses, the new volume contains photos of principals from the Beltane Festival and even local community police officers.

The first delivery of Peebles & its People Volume 2 will arrive over the weekend - in time for the Peebles Christmas Lights Switch-on next Thursday.

The books will be sold by The Callants during the switch-on celebrations.

Following next Thursday copies will be available from Graham McGrath's outlet on the Eastgate.

All profits from Peebles & its People Volume 2 will be used by The Callants to fund future projects and worthy causes in the Royal Burgh.
