Great weather and some great crowds saw this year’s Tweedbank Fair turn out to be one of the best, according to the event’s chairman.
Rob Goudie was speaking after the 2014 programme of events came to an end, and had nothing but praise for the young principals involved.
“I have to say this year’s Tweedbank Lad and Lass, Josh Wright and Katie Wilson, together with their attendants, did an absolutely fantastic job,” Mr Goudie told The Southern.
“All in all, we had a great week with a lot of hard work put in by a reduced number of committee. Every single member worked really hard to ensure this year’s event was as good as ever.”
Although the elements last Wednesday were not too kind, the fancy dress event avoided the rain by moving inside to the school.
However, the warm, sunny weather at the weekend saw a large crowd turn out for the flower parade and the Chris Doyle memorial football tournament, and the rest of the fair events.
Mr Goudie added: “ We are very grateful to our sponsors, S & S Joiners and Simpsons Malt, as well as those other local businesses which contributed.”
