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.
Our 2020-21 programme of talks was disrupted by the Covid19 emergency, but we were able to hold three talks in the Wauchope Hall in the period before Christmas. The situation now - early 2021 - is unclear and we are not sure whether we will be able to do the same in the next few months. We will update this page and contact all those on our email list when things become clearer.
Revised syllabus for the 2020/21 session.
These talks will take place at 7.30pm in the Wauchope Hall, rather than our own Mission Hall meeting place. Further details to be announced in due course - watch this space.
