THE 2024 Tweedbank Fair took place last week and was a huge success.

Celebrations began on Sunday, May 26, with the investiture and treasure hunt.

Then on Wednesday, May 29, the village hosted its fancy dress.

Fair week ended with the grand parade, Rock on the Loch and fair at Tweedbank Primary School on Saturday (June 1), with a host of other events taking place across the week.

And almost all saw a boost in attendance, according to Tweedbank Fair convener Paul Wheatley.

He said: "It was a great week with attendance at all events up on previous years, and the Principals were a true credit to Tweedbank all week.

"We added some new things such as the Tweedbank Fair App to keep people up to date, hold all the information needed and allow table ordering at events in the community centre, and continued to grow the fair day with the addition of food trucks, more free kids activities including inflatables, faceprinting and superhero visits – making an event that’s as much fun for six-year-olds as 86-year-olds.

"The weather of course helped, and the dedicated team of volunteers on the committee without whom Fair couldn’t happen, and we are very much looking forward to Tweedbank Fair 2025."
