Great service

SIR, - Please can I covey my huge appreciation through the pages of this newspaper to George Romanes and all the staff that work in the Pharmacy in Duns.

Over the festive period I found myself needing their services on more than one occasion, when others have their doors firmly closed I was relieved to find my local pharmacy open for a few precious hours.

Having young children I do my best to be prepared for all eventualities but when you are faced with sick children it is a huge relief to know there is somewhere to go to that can advise or simply put my mind at ease.

We often take it for granted whilst we enjoy our time off that others forgo a part of their celebrations to provide this invaluable service so I wanted to take this time to write a letter and let you all know that it does not go unnoticed, it is very much appreciated and thank you.
