Volunteers sought for Summer Festival

Share this article

AN appeal has gone out for volunteers to help make this year’s Summer Festival the best yet.

Organisers are also keen to hear from anyone who may have new suggestions for possible programme activities, and new entertainment ideas for the hugely popular Party on the Pitch.

The ten-day extravaganza, which showcases a wide variety of events and activities, runs from August 13-21, is now in its 27th year.

Organising secretary Graham Ford told the Hawick News this week: “We are looking for assistance from the Hawick public.

“Regular groups who participate in the Summer Festival programme are also asked to confirm their events to myself. And any new groups who would like their activity added to the Summer Festival leaflet, which is distributed around the Borders in the lead up to the August event, should also get in touch.”
