Welcome Pack



If you are new to the village and have not yet received a Welcome Pack please ask in the Library, Surgery, Post Office or Tea Room or email: denholmetc@gmail.com

One resident said: “As a new resident in Denholme, I just wanted to say what a really nice gesture to leave me the above pack.  I am local so know Denholme quite well but this has some useful information in and was appreciated.”

  1. Wonder if anyone had thought about putting a bench around the other side of the park .I walk my dog most days and she runs around with a couple of dogs we stay well away from the childrens play area .Also the football pitch . A bench would be very welcome by people walking dogs in that area .

Please talk to us!
