The Masonic lodge in Peebles is celebrating it's 300th birthday.

Opened in 1716, the local Borders chapter will celebrating with a series of events, including the parade down the high street on Saturday. Members from lodges from across Scotland are attending.

Very proud indeed. It's quite an achievement for any organisation in any town to survive for 300 years.
