All meetings are held in the society's own Hertitage Centre - the Mission Hall, Grafton Road, Town Yetholm TD5 8RU. This 'tin tabernacle' (see image below) was built in the 1930s and is itself part of Yetholm's historic environment. It is slightly set back from the road.
Following the disruption caused by the covid crisis we hope to resume our meetings in the Mission Hall for the 2021-22 Season.
All meetings will take place at 7.30pm, except for the Christmas dinner - details to be announced.
