Sunny weather has greeted the start of Kelso Civic Week. And organisers say the biggest crowd in recent years attended the celebrations’ family day in Shedden Park on Sunday.

Kelso Laddies’ Association secretary Richie Allan said: “It was a great success, the weather really brought people out. The week, altogether, has been very good so far.

“Kelso Laddie Calum Thomson is attracting a good following and we are hoping for the fine weather to continue.”

Tuesday evening’s rideout to Stichill, Hume and Ednam saw the Kelso principals dancing the reel at Ednam and the cavalcade take a welcome stop at Hume.
