IT'S Christmas! And, to celebrate, the Border Telegraph has hundreds of pounds worth of prizes to giveaway.

We have teamed up with supermarket giants Tesco and Asda, retailer Semi-Chem and the Pavilion Cinema in Galashiels to offer our readers some amazing gifts this week - including some designer perfume, a girl's bike and tickets to watch the latest big-screen blockbuster movies.

And, best of all, we plan to give them all away within 24 hours of our paper coming out on Wednesday (December 23) - just in time for Christmas.

For more details on the competitions and how to enter, turn to pages 4, 8 and 11 of our festive edition.

And remember, at selected newsagents this week, you can also pick up a free packet of Jelly Belly jelly beans when you buy a copy of the Border Telegraph (while stocks last).

Merry Christmas!
