'Great day for the family'- Yarrow and Ettrick show

The Yarrow and Ettrick show secretary Anne Turnbull is hoping for lots of people and sunshine on show day.

"Yarrow Show tomorrow is the biggest blackfaced sheep show in the South of Scotland and this year we also have excellent entries in the all of the other sheep sections :- Cheviots; Park Sheep; and North Country Cheviots. It is a very pleasant day out for all the family. We will have Pipe Bands & Silver Bands playing; Childen's Races; and the hugely hilarious terrier racing.

I think we are going to be lucky with the weather. So many events have been cancelled this year so hopefully we will have lots of people through the gate."

– Anne Turnbull, Yarrow and Ettrick Show Secretary

Yarrick and Ettrick annual show given the green light

The 92nd Yarrow and Ettrick annual show will go ahead tomorrow, after the showyard committee gave the thumbs-up following a field inspection.

Show organisers are urging people to ignore the "road closed" sign on the A708, as the sign applies to forestry work in Moffat.

The show will feature horse and sheep competitions, pet and dog shows, children's races and performances from Melrose Pipe and Selkirk Silver bands.

The event takes place at Philliphaugh, near Selkirk, with gates opening at 8.30am.
