 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.

HELP US TO PAY TRIBUTE TO 13 SONS OF Cornhill VILLAGE WHO DIED DURING
THE FIRST WORLD WAR

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?

If so, contact Eric Grounds on 01890 850616 or Email:
