Melrose Festival Installation and Crowning

Blessed with dry sunny although cool weather the main events of Festival week were held in the grounds of Melrose Abbey. Scott Roy was installed as Melrosian by Chairman Mac Brown and Festival Queen Alexis Green was crowned by Mrs Ruth Parker. Council leader David Parker gave an excellent oration involving all aspects of the Festival.
The evening then progressed to the Queens tea party whilst the Ex-Melrosians Dinner took place slightly later.
