Coun Douglas thanked spectators for turning out, all those involved in putting on the day's events and those involved with the Christmas lights display.

The new lighting at the town hall has been funded by Berwick Town Council with Steven Monks doing the electrical work, with Berwick Rotary Club responsible for the Christmas tree on Marygate and the lights on the Scotsgate arch and Royal Tweed Bridge.
