Gypsy/Travellers - rights and responsibilities

St Boswells Fair

The St Boswells Fair takes place annually in the middle of July. The dates for 2024 are Wednesday 17 to Monday 22 July. 

While staying on The Green and attending the Fair, we ask that visitors:

  • allow clear access to the site should services be required to attend in the event of an emergency 
  • make use of the skips provided to dispose of litter
  • use the portaloos and the public conveniences next to the bus stop
  • keep both driving on The Green and speed to a minimum
  • supervise and control open fires
  • supervise and control any animals to prevent incidents and injury, both to the public and the animals
  • are considerate of neighbours and keep noise levels to a minimum, especially after 10pm
  • report any instances of discrimination/ hate crime that you may experience - this can be done by reporting to ourselves on 0300 100 1800 or directly to Police Scotland on 101
