A HAWICK bakery and café is the toast of the town after its owners celebrated 20 years at the helm.
Nick and Jackie Powolny took over Brydon’s in 1993, and to mark the pair’s hard work and effort over the last two decades, local MSP John Lamont has lodged a motion in the Scottish Parliament congratulating them on their success.
The bakery has been on Hawick’s High Street for more than 100 years, making it one of the oldest in the town, and it continues to go from strength to strength.
Mr Lamont commented: “Brydon’s bakery and café has been a mainstay on Hawick’s High Street for well over a century, helping it to become one of the most iconic shops in the town. When Jackie and Nick took it over they helped continue its proud history, and 20 years later it continues to thrive.
“This is in no small part thanks to the tremendous amount of hard work and effort that they have put into running the business. They are well-kent faces around the town, and anyone who has visited the bakery will know about the high-quality food they always have on offer.
“With many High Street stores struggling in recent years it is encouraging to see their continued success, especially as they help to provide several job opportunities to local residents.
“I know that everyone in Hawick will want to join me in congratulating them on this anniversary, and I look forward to going in to buy my morning coffee, eggs and toast for many more years to come!”
