Eildon opens its doors at ‘Poynder Apartments’ the former Kelso High School

Our much anticipated renovation of the historic old Kelso High School on Bowmont Street, opened its doors this week to share the fantastic transformation. Now called Poynder Apartments, the new extra care development, is a mix of one and two bedroom flats, providing onsite care and support services to people aged 60 years and above.

Visitors included key stakeholders involved in the renovation project, neighbours and members of the local community who were invited to see first-hand the magnificent art deco listed building. Many were former pupils of the school and shared their memories of their time there.
