Border Union Show bicentenary events get under way

Hundreds of farmers have gathered to begin celebrations for the Border Union Agricultural Society's bicentenary.

The organisation was formed in Kelso in the Borders on 22 January 1813.

A range of special events is planned for the year, culminating in the 200th agricultural show on 26 and 27 July.

The Countess of Wessex has agreed to be a patron of the society in a landmark year for an organisation that claims to have driven "vital improvements" in the industry.
