Each year the group of volunteers hold exhibitions, develop story boards and produce leaflets and books.

The Trust was delighted to make an award to fund the design and printing of their third and final book in the ‘We’re from Kelso’ series - More from Kelso.  This is a great example of a group of volunteers working to preserve the history of their local community.

As a result of receiving the award the charity has now produced the book to celebrate ten years of stories about men and women from Kelso and its connections.

"Kelso has had a long and interesting history and Kelso Heritage Society hope that this publication will help the wider community to discover more about their heritage and be inspired by these unique men and women” (Kelso Heritage Society)
