With Hawick Common Riding now only two weeks and one day away (Friday, June , the town is fairly buzzing with anticipation of enjoying their special day for the first time since 2019.

Our photographer Bill McBurnie was at hand at both ride-outs to capture the smiles and the fun.

Songs were sung, selfies were taken and autographs signed by the so-called “Big Four”, Right-Hand Man Connor Brunton, Left-Hand Man Gareth Renwick, Cornet Greig Middlemass and Acting Father Alan Brown.

There's more to come in the next few days, with the traditional ride-outs to Mosspaul at noon, this Saturday and Tuesday, and the Chase Night next Thursday, June 2 at 6pm.
