It’s noticeable these days when walking through Berwick town how locals walk with a kind of bounce. Due to the town, once isolated and out on a limb, being the place to flee from now acknowledged as one of the best places to live in the country. Berwick has everything: great leisure and artistic facilities, fine beaches, a golf course and a putting course, shops, Berrydin Books, restaurants, pubs particularly the Barrels of Ale and … you need to come and have a look yourself.
How to do the Berwick bounce: put your left foot forward, press down hard as you swing your right foot round and down while at the same time skipping forward on your left foot. If you don’t fall down you’ve probably done the Berwick bounce. Don’t practice this along the pier as you very well may pitch yourself into the North Sea.
