Hawick Cornet Connor Brunton with youngsters ready for the walk around the town.

IN PICTURES: Teries turn out to meet new Hawick Cornet

Dozens of youngsters braved the rain to greet this year’s Hawick Cornet Connor Brunton on Wednesday night.

The 24-year-old joiner, his right and left-hand men Gareth Renwick and Ali George, and acting father Joe Crawford let the walk around the town followed by a sing-song at the town hall doors - all captured by our photographer Bill McBurnie.

The excitement mounts as the new cornet is due to emerge from his home in Rosebank Road.
