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, Simprim and Birgham Kirk Yards have been completed and the team has started on Swinton, in fact they are halfway. More details on war memorials and the fallen in the World Wars have been added. Details of our talks, and those of our kindred body, Tillvas, have been added.iA 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.
