A Memorial Service for the late Andrew Cowan will be held on Saturday 1st February 2020, commencing at 1pm.
The venue will be Duns Parish Church, in Duns, Berwickshire, TD11 3DD, just off the A6105, Station Road in the centre of Duns. Parking for guests will be available at Duns Primary School, Langtongate, TD11 3QQ, and there will be two buses to bring people to and from the church. Parking near the church or elsewhere in the town may be quite limited at that time.
The Memorial Service is expected to last around one hour. Afterwards, guests are invited to tea/coffee and refreshments back at Duns Primary School.
There are no specific dress requirements.
The Jim Clark Museum in Newtown Street, Duns, TD11 3ER, of which Andrew was a patron, is opening specially from 10:30am on 1st February for those attending Andrew’s Memorial Service and who may wish to visit the recently refurbished museum whilst in the area. The Museum is close to the Primary School where the refreshments are being provided after the Memorial Service.
The family are not looking for any floral tributes, but in honour of Andrew, his wife Linda has established a charitable ‘Just Giving’ arrangement in favour of the Borders General Hospital, in support of ancillary services for patients. This hospital cared for Andrew during his final years and whether people are attending his Memorial Service or not, they may wish to donate to this worthwhile charity in Andrew’s name, and leave a message on the site.
