This year’s Roberton Show, which will be held tomorrow (Saturday), is on track to be as popular as ever and a great day out for the whole family.

The event, which takes place in its usual location at Scaurend Haugh, is open to the public from 1pm, with judging from 10.30am. Admission is £3 for adults and entry for children is free

This year’s attractions include music from the Hawick Scout Fellowship Pipe Band, a quilting demonstration from the award winning Borderline Quilter, valley resident Kay Bell, a sheep dog demonstration and children’s crafts and entertainment. There will also be afternoon teas, a raffle, tombola, home-baking and a licenced bar.

The industrial marquee will include a wonderful display of baking, jams and jellies, knitting and sewing, crafts, floral displays, vegetables and a varied children’s section; while the local WRI will be competing for The Pringle Cup, this year’s theme being Hawick Common-Riding 1514-2014.

The sheep classes see the introduction of two new categories – the ‘Young Handler Competition’ and ‘Black Sheep Competition.’

The day will end with a barbecue at 5pm.
