Community leaders in Kelso hope the Tour of Britain will boost the Borders' reputation internationally. The first stage of the event finished in the town yesterday afternoon, Sunday 3 September. It was shown live on ITV 4:

Not only is it bringing people in but there'll be great footage that's going to be seen around the world. They'll hopefully see what we've got to offer and come for other events."
