MP Michael Moore and council leader David Parker are more than half way through their 97 mile sponsored Great Tweed Trek, which they started on Monday.

Walking the length of the Tweed from its source at Tweedsmuir to Berwick, the two politicians are raising money for Radio Borders Cash for Kids and the Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue.

Along the way, Michael Moore, a committed NO supporter, and David Parker, a committed YES supporter, will have a blether about the Referendum and tonight’s blether is at the Cross Keys Hotel, Kelso at 7pm.

Their Friday stint takes them from Kelso to Norham, with a stop at Coldstream which includes a boat ride over the Tweed. Then they return to Coldstream on in the evening for a blether in the Eildon Centre, at 7pm.

They may have different views on the referendum but Michael and David emphasise they are friends just now, and will be friends whatever the result of the Referendum.

The final leg of the journey on Saturday takes them from Norham, setting off for Berwick at 10am, and treating themselves to a paddle in the sea at the end of their trek.
