Glorious weather greeted the start of St Boswells Village Week at the weekend.

Winners of the inaugural St Boswells 10km race were Jonathan Taylor and Liz Taylor, while the afternoon saw a big crowd for fun tennis games and a barbecue.

Adult class winner was Gary Lemmon, with Kate Arnott winning the children’s category.

In the evening a packed village hall was entertained by St Boswells Live!

The tennis club boot sale was on Sunday and, on Monday, Poppy’s Puppets and lunch in the hall was well supported in aid of the nursery, playgroup and toddlers.

The golf club’s fun afternoon followed, with a guided walk on Tuesday evening. Last night saw the car treasure hunt and this evening (Thursday) at 6.15pm, Melrose Pipe Band will Beat Retreat on the Green in front of the primary school.

This is followed by the St Boswells Village Hall Refurbishment Project launch with special guest, record-breaking Atlantic rower Leven Brown.

And still to come is the fancy dress, family disco and karaoke tomorrow; pet show, football, and Boswells Got Talent on Saturday, with the church service, potted sports and village race on the Green on Sunday.

Afterwards, there is rounders and barbecue at the cricket club.
