James IV Lecture - Etal Village Hall

Message from Antony Chessell, Chairman of Till Valley Archaeological Society (Tillvas). I would be very grateful if you would pass the word around all your contacts in Coldstream about the above lecture which is taking place on Sunday, 11th October at 2.30pm in Etal Village Hall. You have probably received details already but, just to add to these, the speaker will be Max Adams on the subject "The King in the North - the life and times of Oswald of Northumbria" Tickets are £5 and can be obtained from Maureen Charlton, our Secretary, but it will be possible to buy them at the door. The speaker will be introduced by Alistair Bowden, the Flodden 1513 Project Coordinator and the vote of thanks will be given by Lord Joicey. This lecture is the highlight of the TillVAS lecture programme and we would be really pleased if members of Coldstream and District Local History Society and other societies in Coldstream were able to come along. TillVAS was founded as a result of the excavations at Flodden Hill and we always think of the annual James IV Memorial lecture as being an important cross-Border event.

Coldstream Football Club - Public Meeting 7:30pm 31st October 2012

The Football Club has asked the Society if it could advertise on this website a public meeting to be held in the St.Cuthbert's Centre at 7:30pm on 31st October 2012. This is to explain to Coldstream citizens that the club's hundred year full membership of the Scottish Football Association could end if it doesn't comply with 80 new criteria.

Society Social: Thursday 25 March 2012

The Society is hosting in the Eildon Centre a social to raise funds for the resurrection of the Purves headstone at Lennel Kirkyard. This headstone mentions James Charles Purves who fought at the Crimea and took part of the Charge of the Light Brigade in 1854 and has been grounded for some time. Other private parties are helping the funding but there is a shortfall which will hopefully be addressed through this social event. There will be refreshments and food laid on, and a gallery illustration of old Coldstream photographs. This is an evening to network and help raise funds for a worthy cause. The entry fee is a modest sum and members of the public are most welcome.

Dedication in Parish Church to a Crimean War hero

The month of May 2012 (date to be announced) will see Coldstream Parish Church dedicate a newly-installed plaque on the north wall of the church (interior) to a Crimean wat hero who was killed as a result of being involved in the 'Charge of the Light Brigade'.
