DESPITE the severe wintry weather, Mosstroopers were out in force for the annual Ball which was celebrated in the usual fine style on Friday night.
The Common-Riding Principals were joined at the popular town hall function by Mosstroopers president and Ex-Acting Father Terry Scott and his wife Margaret.

Alan told the Hawick News: said: “It was a great night. Considering the weather it was fantastic that nearly everyone made it to the town hall and hopefully were warmed up and cheered up and the same time.”
