You will note that Duns is to be included in a cross Borders project to enhance existing civic weeks to welcome 'hame' exiled Scots who may well have left the native hearth for good reason, like being a Prime Minister in London. The organisers have coined 'Return to the Ridings' as an appropriate eye catching slogan which they hope will resonate with Border Scots' terminally bored with Galashiels and earning big bucks in Dubai.
Expatriate Yorkshire people might be a trifle misled?
