Selkirk recycling centre reopens today, after being closed for five months to allow for essential flood works.

The centre was closed in February to make way for a diversion route for the Selkirk Flood Protection Scheme to be extended through the site.

The work means homes and businesses can still be accessed while the installation of a new culvert requires a section of Dunsdale Hough road to be shut.

A Border Television TV Guide from 1961 is to be auctioned in Carlisle today.

The small piece of Border TV history was found in a house clearance where it had been hidden in a box for more than 50 years.

The September 1st edition transports us back to a time a few years before colour TV would have been in many homes.

It features programmes including Wrestling with Big Daddy, Western TV series Cheyanne, The Avengers and of course Coronation Street.

Experts say they have no idea how much the guide, which will be auctioned at H&H Auction Room, will be sold for.

This is a fantastic step back in time, and a great reminder of the of the TV programmes, which were popular over 50 years ago, most of which are well remembered and some of which are still with us today.

This quite literally is a magazine, which is synonymous with the 1960s, and I know it will bring back some very fond reminders and happy memories for many people.
