There are a number of events taking place at Benholm Kirk over the coming weeks.
April 21 is the official opening date of the Family History Room set in the church vestry. The ceremony will be performed by Tristram Clarke, an archivist at the National Archives of Scotland, and he will be giving advice to budding family historians. Old parish Birth, Marriage and Mort cloth records relating to Benholm Kirk will be available for research.
So if your ancestors lived in the Benholm area, this is where to find out more about your past. What dark secrets lurk there? This facility will be ongoing and open to all.
Floral Event ‘A Year in Bloom’ will take place June 15th 16th 17th. 10.00am-4.00pm. Over the weekend the small church will be filled with wonderful floral displays depicting a year in flowers.
