'Formed in 1947 to preserve the Antiquities of the district and provide a meeting ground for like minded people to enjoy and protect the exceptionally wide and fruitful field of historical, literary and archaeological lore which is available throughout the county ... Our evening talks are open to all.'

'Our aims are the study and sharing of all aspects of our environment and culture, past, present and future through talks, visits and publications with particular but not exclusive relevance to Tweeddale and the Scottish Borders.
Talks are held on the second Tuesday of each month from October to March ... Each talk will conclude with a Question and Answer session plus an opportunity to talk directly to the speaker.'
