Welcome to the 410th Riding of the Bounds.
This year has seen the committee working extra hard with our sponsors, friends and landowners to improve the ride experience for participants and spectators We hope you notice and enjoy the improvements!
Thanks to the Committee members for giving up their time and continued support
Once again many thanks to Lorraine Stark, Graeme Stark and our new member Steve Lowdon for their manual labour and route works. Their attendance at the many planning meetings and committee meetings. They have worked tirelessly to install gates and to dig out ditches on various parts of the route, often in the wet and never with a complaint
We see the final year of Bethany Innes as a principal and wish to thank her for her hard work over the last three years in representing our Town with her presence at many local events and her attendance at other border towns.
I’m certain that the last three years have flown past for her and that she has made friendships and memories which will last forever.
Courtnay Grey takes the reins as Chief Marshal, we wish her well and hope that she too has the time of her life, making new friends and representing the committee at local events and representing our Town further afield.
Rebecca Tait takes up post as the left hand man, she has demonstrated an ability to represent Berwick at many local events and ride outs further afield, her duties now will be to share her experiences and offer advice and support to Courtnay and the new Right Hand Man Vikki Irwin Good luck ladies for 2019
