The focus of the exhibition will be a preview of the group’s latest project ‘Remembering Earlston’s Railway (1863-1965)’.

Twenty photographs have been selected to be turned into display pictures which will shortly go on show at shops and other venues throughout the village.

The Community Group at Earlston Primary School has been involved interviewing grandparents and older residents to gather their memories of the railway, with the results also on show at the exhibition.
