Pringle to form an Archive

Monday, 26 July 2010

Pringle of Scotland have launched an appeal to the public to help it create an archive of its 195 year history.  They are looking for objects, documents, photographs and memories of the company and the brand.  This information will help form the basis of a company archive in Hawick.

The company is hosting a ‘Day of Record’ at the site of the former factory in Hawick on Thursday 12th August (10am - 6pm).  This will be an Antiques Road Show style day for local people to come along and bring in their treasures and share their memories of the company.

To find out more about the day please email:
