Census 2021

The Office for National Statistics is hiring field staff across England and Wales for the 2021 Census. It is looking for individuals who have a good knowledge of their communities, with time to spare in March and April this year, for temporary Census Officer roles. We have not been able to establish whether jobs are available in this particular part of the county, but we have been told that it can be difficult to find suitable candidates to cover the more rural areas, so there may be opportunities that are within reach of those who live in Carham parish. To apply or to register your interest in this or another Census 2021 job, visit the census recruitment website.

Christmas Church Services

The churches of St Cuthbert, St Helen and St Paul have published details of their Christmas church services including information about how Covid-19 restrictions will be met. In Carham there will be a carol service at St Cuthbert’s at 11.00 am on Sunday 20 December, and a Communion service at 9.30 am on Christmas day. Both services are open to all people, of any faith or none. For further information, contact the Church Warden, Peter Straker-Smith, on 01890 830 316.

Hampers for Christmas

Glendale Connect is asking for help in identifying people in our community who might benefit from receiving a hamper this Christmas. If you know anyone in Carham parish who is going to be on their own at Christmas, or is finding life difficult at the moment, or is isolated, and you think they would be cheered by receiving a hamper, please contact the Parish Clerk.

Carham 1018 Conference

The Carham 1018 Society is holding a virtual conference on the afternoon of Sunday 15 November. Topics will include the recent archaeological and geophysical investigations at Carham, Carham and the Anglo-Scottish border, and Carham and the St Cuthbert connection. This conference was to have taken place earlier this year, but had to be postponed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. For the full conference programme and joining instructions, please email Clive Hallam-Baker.

Annual Assembly 2020

Carham parish’s Annual Assembly was held on 8 September. The meeting agreed the minutes of the previous year’s Annual Assembly, reviewed the Parish Council’s internal audit, and approved its financial accounting and governance statements and its certificate of exemption. All of these documents can be found on the Meetings and Standards pages on this website. If you have any questions about them, please contact the Parish Clerk.
