BERWICKSHIRE’S Diamond Jubilee celebrations continue on Saturday, May 5, with the sponsored cycle and row from Abbey St Bathans to Eyemouth, via St Abbs - the first stage of the Lammermuirs to London Bridge journey.

The event will start at 11am at Abbey St Bathans when Depute Lieutenant, Joy Dobie, signals the start of a 17 mile sponsored cycle from the Abbey to St Abbs and cyclist, Tim Caine, will be carrying the Lammermuir Lamb mascot on the first part of her journey to London Bridge.

Helen Crowe and her team will welcome the cyclists to the newly refurbished St Abbs Community Centre and Lord Lieutenant, Major Alexander Trotter, will be providing encouragement at St Abbs before he boards Barclaycard Crusader, Eyemouth’s Class lifeboat coxswained by David Collin, to lead the flotilla to Eyemouth.

At 1.30pm, St Abbs Lifeboat operations manager, Alistair Crowe will signal the start of the rowing event, and at the same time Helen Crowe will start the runners and walkers off on the coastal path from Castle Rock to the Coble House Eyemouth.
