|About the Study
||AULD EARLSTON is a small community heritage group in the Berwickshire village of Earlston in the Scottish Borders. Set up in 2012 by an enthusiastic group of volunteers, it aims to preserve the history of our community for future generations by collecting documents and sharing memories and photographs. Current activities include:
- A blog set up in March 2015 to feature items from its collections and articles on aspects of the village's past.
- An annual slide show and exhibition.
- Displays on particular themes at local events e.g. Earlston Civic Week and Earlston Community Day.
- A Sharing Memories project, talking to older residents and recording their experiences on growing up in the village.
- An ongoing project to collect press cuttings on Earlston from local newspapers.
- An associated Facebook page Lost Earlston, featuring old photographs and allowing its followers to share, discuss and learn from Earlston's past.
- A project "Remembering Earlston's Railway (1863-1965)" with framed photographs on display in shops and venues around the village - linked with the recent partial re-opening of the Borders Railway.
