The event will focus on village shops and businesses spanning 160 years. Key features will be the display of large scale maps of the village in 1857, 1897 and 1967, together with photographs, advertisements, press reports, and memories gathered from older residents.
Complementing the exhibition over the two days will be four popular Slide Shows, looking at the village “Then and Now”.
Auld Earlston Chairman David Lothian said "We have been delighted at the positive responses to our four previous exhibition weekends. We were encouraged by the length of time many people took to look around, and exchange reminiscence. Do come along to this two day event, with much of the material not shown before, and find out what our group is doing to keep Earlston's past alive for future generations".
He added "Our group would welcome contributions of photographs, old receipts, letterheads, plus memories of the many shops that once served the village. These can be handed to committee members, or e-mailed to email@example.com."
