Auld Earlston Show Proved a Popular Draw

Auld Earlston's recent exhibition and slide show at the Church Hall has been voted a great success by organisers of the local heritage group. 

The theme of "Horses to Horse-Power" looked at travel around Earlston in times past and drew a large audience throughout the two days.   Visitors had the chance to browse through information panels and vintage photographs of  horses, bicycles, motor bikes, cars, vans, buses, trains, vehicles in industry and farming, roads, bridges and even planes,  plus read some travellers' tales and see further material from the Auld Earlston collection. .

Throughout the event, four slide shows were held and  attracted capacity audiences who enjoyed a tour around "Earlston West to East", with the history and anecdotes  commentary  sparking lively discussion. 

Chairman David Lothian said "We were very encouraged by the favorable comments we received. Many people stayed several hours looking around, spotting relatives and friends in the photographs and exchanging reminiscences. We would like to thank everyone involved for helping our group keep Earlston's past alive for future generations".
