Bringing piece of Selkirk history to life
The Haining at Selkirk is going back in time over the weekend of May 28-29, and those going along are being invited to share their memories.
An event called Haining Living History 1830-1930 will see the house dressed with period furniture, and numerous exhibits and activities including an interactive Victorian classroom and laundry, baking, children’s crafts, a petting farmyard, vintage vehicles and a teddy bear hunt are lined up. There is also a competition for best period fancy dress costume.
The organisers are inviting anyone who has memorabilia that they would like to share to get in touch.
They would be particularly interested to see a copy of a brochure for a 1939 sale of the house’s furniture.
To help, and for more information, call 01573 224088.
Tickets cost £6 for adults, £4 for concessions and £3 for children. Under-fives go free, and family tickets cost £15.
