If you live in Carham parish, look out for an invitation that is being distributed to all households this weekend. This is for a special event on Monday 3 April 2023, from 7 pm to 8.30 pm at Cornhill Village Hall. The event is to tell you about the project to get life-saving public access defibrillators into communities across the parish. There will be refreshments and plenty of time for socialising with friends and neighbours, too. If you live in the parish but are not able to come along, please see if a neighbour can attend so that your community is represented. The event is being funded by Carham Parish Council. For more information, contact the Parish Clerk.
Our three local churches – St Cuthbert’s in Carham, St Helen’s in Cornhill on Tweed, and St Paul’s in Branxton – are holding a joint service on Sunday 29 May at West Learmouth Farm. The open-air service, marking Rogation Sunday, will include a blessing of the trees that have been planted by Carham Parish Council as a contribution to The Queen’s Green Canopy – a UK-wide tree-planting initiative created to commemorate the jubilee. The trees have been planted where the public footpath meets the byway at the old West Learmouth railway sidings, courtesy of Mrs Moore of West Learmouth Farm. The Rogation Sunday service is at 11.00 am and everyone is welcome to attend. Please wear stout footwear, as it may be muddy underfoot. For more information, call Pat Feerick on 01890 254 794.
