The Coldstream & District Local History Society welcomes all interested in discussing and researching the history of Berwickshire and north Northumberland.

Projects: Preserving our rich heritage

The Society hopes its members and friends are having a prosperous and healthy 2015. In the remainder of the year, there is a lot to look forward to - talks, field trips, ongoing projects and the Great War commemorations. Recently, the transcriptions of Eccles, Leitholm and Birgham Kirk Yards have been completed and the team has started on Swinton next. A few more items have been installed in 'Historic Documents' and the 'Gallery' section has been added to with photographs. This year's subscriptions are £6, payable to Joan Turnbull, our Treasurer. New members are very welcome and we have recently acquired three.
