The Scott's Selkirk festival is set to go ahead this year, but under a new 'guise' according to Committee Chair Edith Scott.

Due to a low number of volunteers there were fears the festival, which has run for 14 years, would be cancelled this year.

However, enough volunteers have come forward following a general meeting on Monday night, and the event looks set to continue in 2015.

"We are delighted others have come forward and the festival will go ahead. New people have even joined the committee."

– Edith Scott, Chair of Scott's Selkirk Committee

Another meeting will decide the exact format of the festival, including what month of the year it will take place.

It has traditionally occurred during a weekend in December, but now there is a possibility it could combine with the Selkirk Sessions in October.

The precise plans are as yet undecided.
