IMG_5987 IMG_5988

We are delighted that our first exhibition of our 2019 Season celebrates the life of a well known local business woman and suffragette, Isabel Cowe.  Ms Cowe was born in the village of St Abbs and went on to be awarded the RLNI Gold Brooch. She was a prominent campaigner in the fight for Votes for Women and over the years took part in peaceful protests, handed out petitions and even marched from Edinburgh to London to appeal to the government. Visit our special exhibition in our first floor gallery this Spring to find our more about Isabel’s incredible life…
