Carnival queen Leah Bell and Burnfoot lad Ryan Scott did the estate proud as it welcomed Hawick Cornet Connor Brunton and his party to the event. An exciting programme of musical entertainment, including a Hawick debut performance from the newly-launched Harden Blades, made up of four former Scocha members, entertained the crowd, with food, stalls and a fairground also on hand to keep the carnival-goers busy. Photographer Alwyn Johnston snapped some of the action.
