IN PICTURES: Hawick Common Riding Denholm rideout

The last rideout in the run-up to this year’s Hawick Common Riding took place on Saturday afternoon, when a good mounted support followed cornet Connor Bunton along the 22-mile round route from Hawick to Denholm’s Green.

Plenty of people, young and old, turned out to enjoy the celebrations. Photographer Bill McBurnie was on hand to capture the occasion.
