Q. What will Hutton have on 9 July which Paxton will not? A. A stage of the Jim Clark Memorial Rally-the Whiteadder leg. I understand that this is the first time that the 'most popular and biggest rally in Britain' (publicity blurb) will have shown itself within the greater Hutton area. The stage will start the other side of Hutton Castle Bridge and roar through Hutton heading towards the Bluestane Ford (if passable) and then on towards Chirnside. The village wil be closed for about 5 hours from 12 noon until the rally has safely passed through. The Hutton Think Tank has been tasked with ideas about how Hutton can best exploit the Rally's presence-own brand water bottles (a la the London Marathon) an emergency urinal facility (which wopuld have helped Paula Radcliffe in that event) a drive through souvenir stall selling funny hats and picture postcards have all been suggested.
