Hopefully, they will also be considering attending the various festivals which add so much to the life of our area.

Following the success of the third annual Berwick Literary Festival last year, which attracted an increased audience, this year’s festival will take place during the weekend of October 20-22.

It will, as previously, involve a mix of local and national speakers, who should appeal to a wide range of people.

Also, as before, there will be an extensive schools’ programme and a Poetry Café.
