 Trustees Needed

to join the

Wark Village Hall Community Fund

The Community Fund is currently looking for villagers to join the Trust.

No hard work required, and probably only 1 meeting per year, but due to one of the trustees having to give up their place due to ill health, the trust will be left with just 2 trustees.

If you are able to help, please email the website or Parish Council, who will forward your information.

 Welcome to the Carham Community Website

The Parish villages, that lie along the border with Scotland, sit among some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain.
Whether a local resident, or someone visiting or planning to visit the region; please take time to navigate these pages for information about the area.
The area is steeped in history, and Northumberland and the Scottish Border area has a wealth of interesting places to visit.
If you are interested in historic places of interest; beautiful scenery; sandy beaches or exploring picturesque villages - you have come to the right place!



This year marks the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. We have not yet been able to prove that any son of the village died in the battle, although one, JR Reid was wounded on 5 July 1916 while serving with the Northumberland Fusiliers.Subsequently he was declared missing in action on 3 May 1917.

Early research suggests that two more of the thirteen people named on the War Memorial died on the same day (3 May 1917), although they were serving in the King’s Own Scottish Borderers

John Dalgleish has been positively identified as being Killed in Action in Gallipoli on 12 July 1915, aged 24, when serving with the King’s Own Scottish Borderers

We plan to mount an exhibition in the Church in the weeks prior to

Remembrance Sunday on 13 November

Have you got some time to help with the research?
