The 2000 Melrosian Greig Anderson enlarge
Melrosian for the year 2000 is 25 year old Greig Anderson. Greig has been in Melrose all his life, attending Melrose Grammar School and Earlston High School. On leaving school he became the fourth generation to enter the family fishmongers business in the town. Greig was a member of the Melrose company of the Boys Brigade, where Captain Bill Hastie (last year's Melrosian's father) was in charge.
He is an active member of Melrose 3rds (development team?) at the Greenyards and also lists swimming, running and local history as interests.
When asked about the forthcoming year, Greig said "Obviously I'm delighted to be appointed Millennium Melrosian and I look forward to leading the town in it's celebrations this year. I am also looking forward to visiting other common ridings and civic weeks during their festivities"
