Bypass boogie

AROUND 75 local children, teachers and parents will be dancing along a mile stretch of the Kelso bypass from Shedden Park to Sainsbury’s at 3pm on Saturday to raise money for Sports Relief.

“We wanted to raise the profile of the charity this Sports Relief weekend, and give the kids something fun to do. We’re just going to take music and free-style,” explained organiser Michelle Douglas, who has dance studios in Kelso, Duns, Melrose and Earlston. One young dancer, eight-year-old Emily Girdwood from Kelso, enthused: “We will all be in our uniform and there are even some teachers from Edenside School dancing with us too.”

Anyone wishing to take part is invited to come along to Kelso’s Shedden Park at 3pm with a donation for the charity.
