Organisers of last week’s St Boswells Village Week say this year’s programme of events has to rank as one of the best ever.
Despite the variable weather, which saw periods of warm summer sunshine interspersed with less welcome showers, everyone enjoyed a fantastic week of excellent entertainment with all of the St Boswells Village Week events being very well attended by both participants and spectators.
The village was decorated with bunting and was looking its best for the week-long programme of events and activities.
From coffee mornings and cream teas, guided walk and car treasure hunt, rounders, golf, tennis, quiz night, music at Boswells Live!, creative fancy dress, potted traditional sports and the village race – the list of entertainment went on and on.
A delighted Village Week Committee told The Southern this week: “Yet again another fantastic week, bringing together young and old, animals fur and feathered, whether people played sports, dressed up, performed on stage or just enjoyed the sunny interludes and the general atmosphere – this year’s Village Week ranks as one of the best that St Boswells has seen in many years.
“The committee would like to thank all the groups and organisations for the events and activities and to everyone who supported those events.”
