DENHOLM has been named as joint host of next year’s Scottish Borders Walking Festival.

The village will coorganise the event with Jedburgh, and a plea has gone out for helpers to get involved.

Denholm and District Community Council chairwoman Gwen Crew told last week’s meeting: “Walkerburn and Innerleithen hosted this year’s walking festival, and it was a fantastic succcess, so we’ve got a hard act to follow.

“Obviously, we’re going to start liaising with Jedburgh as soon as possible, but I think initially we have to get the ball rolling and form our own sub-committee comprising those interested in getting involved.”

Scottish Borders Councillor Stuart Marshall suggested that it might be a good idea to co-opt help from outwith the community council, andthis was agreed by the members.
