Every year, as part of the Reiver's Week celebrations in Duns, the Reiver and his party plus other supporters make a friendly visit to Gavinton where they are officially welcomed and provide with hospitality.
July 9th 2014 was an exceptionally nice day resulting in an exceptional turnout of riders and a huge crowd present to welcome them.
This video shows the riders as they approach the village green. Stay to the end for a little girl at the back of the ride entering into the tradition.
