Acting Father and Mother

Acting Father and MotherThe Cornet’s Acting Father and Mother for 2011 are Grahame and Wendy Nichol, 1 Roberton Place. Married for 21 years, they have two sons, Ryan, 19 and Craig, 17. Both boys have amateur National Hunt jockeys licences. Ryan works for local trainer Donald Whillans and Craig is with Kinross based Lucinda Russell. Both boys ride in Point to Points most weekends.

Grahame was educated at Trinity and Hawick High Schools. On leaving school he worked in knitwear for about three years before moving on to work in the racing industry for over twenty years. Grahame now works for himself as a drystone dyker and likes nothing more than being outdoors. A member of the Mosstroopers’ Committee, his main passion is jumps racing and he enjoys most sports liking nothing better than watching local sports personalities doing well in their chosen sport. He is also a very keen hill walker when time allows and is hoping to walk the Borderline from Solway to Berwick.

Acting Mother Wendy is a psychiatric nurse and like Grahame her first passion is horses. She enjoys nothing better than following her two boys round the point to point circuit. Wendy has always been very competitive and in her teens swam for the Northern Area and was also quite successful on the show-jumping circuit.

Grahame and Wendy are both over the moon to have been given this opportunity of being asked to be Acting Father and Mother to Michael and Kirsteen and would like to wish everyone a lovely Common Riding.
