With traders’ moral low due to ongoing roadworks in the centre of the town, a trio of businesses decided to try and generate some positive vibes to cheer everyone up.
Karen Reid, of Karen Reid Designs, Ashley Hogg of Kelso Races and Vanessa Murray of country clothing retailer AHume, organised a Best Dressesd Window competition to celebrate Ladies Day on Sunday, May 25.
Kelso Races offered a prize of two tickets to the day and a bottle of fizz. Pictured top are, from left, Vanessa Murray, overall winner Gail Watson of Border Blooms, Ashley Hogg and Karen Reid. Below right, Darren and Jackie of James Stewart and Sons, who were commended; June Swan and Victoria Dickson of Swans – their window, by Jackie Anderson, was commended; and Louise Stewart of Cloudnine, whose window was also commended.
