Information on the village of Yetholm, near Kelso in Scotland.

Wauchope Community Hall

Situated in Town Yetholm, the hall is in the building which was the one in which the Yetholm Border View United Presbyterians held their worship before they amalgamated with the Free Church, to become Yetholm St James' United Free Church, probably just before the Great War, and used the St James Church building for their services. The ground on which the hall stands was presented to the original church by Wauchope of Niddrie Marischal. The hall, today, is run by a group of Trustees who have kept the facilities up to the highest modern standards. It is the major meeting place and is used by all the local groups, including the WRI, the badminton club etc. The hall is also the venue for the Horticultural Show.
