St Boswells enjoyed some excellent weather for Village Week, and even when the rain came on Sunday, the fancy dress parade still drew plenty of entrants.

Events kicked off on Saturday with a coffee morning and an afternoon of fun at the Tennis Club, followed in the evening by music from Stillhound at St Boswells Live.

Sunday was an afternoon of family fun at the Golf Club and on Monday the children were entertained by Chris Wish in the Village Hall.

From the coffee mornings to the car treasure hunt, guided walks, fancy dress, family football, to the Queen’s tea party and the annual Village Race the entertainment was endless.

A particular highlight was Boswells Got Talent where there were a number of different acts, from dancing and singing to poetry.

Village Week chair Suzan Bell said of the events: “It’s been another successful Village Week for St Boswells, and events were well attended.

“Despite the decline of the weather toward the end of our week, we still managed to carry on with festivities.

“The Village Week relies upon supporters and helpers. Thanks to everyone who supported and attended the events, helping us to raise money for our local clubs and groups. Also a big thank you to everyone who helped organise the village week, including those putting up bunting and flags, organising events and marshalling the village race.”
