There’s an unusual event happening this weekend. Aside from it being the National Scooter Rally in beautiful Kelso, it also coincides with Scottish Summertime and the weather forecast is predicted to be hot, hot, hot – 27º on Friday.


Kelso is only just over the Scottish border, so isn’t too far for most of us. It’s predominately a camping rally held on the Union Showground and just a short stroll over the River Tweed into the compact town centre, where a selection of great pubs and the infamous British Legion Club await you (stunning views from the Legion terrace). Kelso is perfect for that last-minute Bank Holiday sunshine getaway but not so good for our fair-skinned northern friends who will be hiding away indoors (mostly in the pubs) for the weekend.

Four passes to be won

Anyway the sun seems to have gone to the organisers heads because they’ve kindly given us four wristbands as prizes, giving the winners free camping and entertainment for the weekend.

Please only enter if you’re planning to go to the rally, don’t waste a prize that somebody else could benefit from. 

The prizes

We’ll choose four winners, who will each receive a weekend camping and entertainment pass worth £15 when they arrive at the rally this weekend.
