Another season gets under way and our Archive and Research Room re-opens this Thursday.
We had hoped that we might see the opening at our new premises in Overhaugh Street in Galashiels but the very substantial alterations which we have been carrying out there are still not quite complete. Not though all that far away – WATCH THIS SPACE.
According we shall be re-opening at our usual premises at Old Gala House (above).
The Research Room will be open every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and also on Tuesdays and Fridays by appointment. While strictly speaking no appointment is necessary on Thursdays, because if the size of the room (which is why we are moving) this is advised.
To make an appointment contact our Archive Convenor, Mary Thompson - on our Home Page go to ‘Contracts’, scroll down and under ‘Type of Contract’ select ‘Archive Appointment Request’
During the removal it is inevitable that there will be some disruption and probably several days when we shall not be open at all – full details however in due course.
Meantime though we do trust we shall continue to be able to offer a service to members and others with their researches.
