Appeal for Summer Festival volunteers

Hawick Summer Festival Committee has issued an urgent plea for new members, following the resignation of several volunteers.

Chairman Gerry Monaghan says he was shocked at a meeting this week when four committee members announced they’d be stepping down at next month’s AGM. But he also hopes it brings an opportunity for the next generation. He told the Hawick News: “We are appealing for new people, perhaps younger people with fresh ideas who can help us continue this event. But anyone who is keen and willing to help out is most welcome.”
