“The Organisers were impressed by the standard offered by Springwood Hall and the Border Union staff. No organisational problem was left unsolved and every effort was made to accomplish a successful day.”

"We have used Springwood Hall for a number of events from conferences to a major awards dinner. We have found both the venue and the service from the Border Union Agricultural Society excellent. The venue and other local suppliers such as catering companies, certainly demonstrated a very professional approach to the events involving us.”
