    Hawick Reivers Festival
    The reivers festival is an annual event here Hawick. It celebrates the towns ‘Reiving’ past, days where raiders from both Scottish and English sides would battle for anything they could get their hands on. ‘Raids’ regularly took place, with one side bursting into the opposing sides property and taking anything they could get their hands on. The reivers weren’t by any means polite- in fact they were the complete opposite! If the victim of their reive tried to fight back, they would fight back as good as they got.
    The reivers would wear body protection gear, the most common item being a leather ‘jack’, like a waistcoat. They would also wear ‘Steel Bonnets’, sturdy metal helmets to protect their heads.
    Overall the Reivers Festival is a great experience for those young and old, ands all of us here at Hawick High hope the weather won’t let the weekend down!

    All of the people involved have given up a lot of time to help and prepare for the show. Miss Mann is one of the teachers who have been working hard to ensure that everything goes well. Mark Timmins, a fashion journalist, is writing an article on the show for the Southern Reporter. He has been working with the pupils helping them prepare for their big night.
    The money that the fashion show raises on the raffle and such will be going to Breast Cancer Research.
