The Christmas Wagon that travelled around Berwick also included an inflatable Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.

Berwick town councillor Anne Forbes led the organisation of the event, which originally covered the three fields estate area and last year was extended out to the rest of Berwick – including Spittal, Tweedmouth and East Ord.
