Teviot Valley men urged to kit up in kilts

Men of the Teviot Valley are being asked to don their tartan for Kilts on the Catwalk.
The section is a new feature for the second Turners and Growers Teviot Valley Wearable Tartan Art Awards.
Spokeswoman Teresa Bennetts said organisers wanted to keep things interesting so they introduced the category to showcase the valley’s Scottish heritage.
‘‘It’s just something new. There’s lots of families that have Scottish connections and it will bring that to everybody’s attention.’’
Men must wear their family tartan.
Mrs Bennetts said there was also a new ‘‘bra design’’ category and a new ‘‘performance on stage’’ award, which would recognise the work of the designers’ models.
The Turners and Growers Teviot Valley Wearable Tartan Art Awards has also had a change in date and will now be held on September 17.
Earlier this year, the Turners and Growers coolstore, in Ettrick, was announced as the venue for the event.
Last year’s awards in the Roxburgh Town Hall had been a sellout. This year, the catwalk and stage would be constructed from fruit bins, and up to 400 people could be accommodated in the new venue.
Entries close on July 29. Information and entry forms are available from 103 The Store, in Roxburgh, or the event’s Facebook page, Teviot Tartan Time.
