Long service certificates were awarded to 13 elders and a choir member with an exceptional 81 years of service at Galashiels: Trinity Church. James Melrose had served the choir since the age of 11.

The Long Service certificates had been due to be presented at a special service at the end of March 2020, but the service had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
