Run the World for Sport Aid, May 1986.

As well as the run pictured above, some 70 people enjoyed an energetic afternoon when they took part in a sponsored 45-minute workout in Galashiels Public Park.

Two screens projected a film of workout leader Arlene Philips, then choreographer of Hot Gossip, now more famous as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing. The Southern was reliably informed that no sequins were harmed.
