St Boswells residents enjoyed a mixed bag weather-wise for their annual Village Week, but there were still plenty of smiles on faces.

The fun started off with a Coffee Morning, Tennis Family Fun Day and in the evening there was a night of classical music at St Boswells Live!

On Monday, Jango Star succeeded in keeping a hall full of children and adults entertained with his juggling, magic and crazy antics.

One particular highlight of the week was Boswells’ Got Talent. Back by popular demand, the village was entertained by some superbly talented individuals.

From coffee mornings and car treasure hunt, and guided walk to golf fun day, tennis, creative fancy dress, rounders, football, potted traditional sports and the Village Race, the list of entertainment went on.

Village Week chairperson, Suzan Bell said the week had been superb fun once again: “It was packed with entertainment with something for everyone. Whether singing and dancing in Boswells Got Talent, dressing up or playing sport, helping to organise events or simply as a spectator, everyone came together again to demonstrate what a great village St Boswells is.
