Several local organisations work together as Kelso Connections. These organisations are Kelso Heritage (formerly Friends of Kelso Museum) Society, Kelso Library, Kelso and District Amenity Society and Kelso Laddies Association. Kelso Connections was established to create storyboards for the Year of Homecoming 2009. Every year since they have produced storyboards to celebrate more people from Kelso who have made a contribution to the world.
As well as compiling the information for the “We’re from Kelso” exhibition, biographies of 32 people with Kelso connections subsequently turned the exhibition into a book published in 2009.
Kelso Connections went on to research and create two more books. “We’re From Kelso Too”, published in 2015 which contains a further twenty five biographies, and in 2019 to close the project, the final book “More from Kelso” appeared. Kelso Connections also produced a website where you will find a selection of biographies from the first book and a wealth of information on Kelso. http://www.kelsoconnections.co.uk
