After winning the Small Village section in the competition last year Ayton was placed in the Champion of Champions section in 2015. The section was predictably won by Melrose with Ayton, Hawick and Morebattle all being awarded Highly Commended. Many thanks to everyone who played a part in keeping the village looking very colourful, especially Ayton Enhancement Group and the other gardening helpers. You can find more about the group here.
