Following the retirement of Revd. Marion Penfold, the Benefice of Breamish and Till is now pleased to announce the appointment of a new vicar who, among other things, will be responsible for Ingram Church. We’re pleased to introduce Revd. Tracey Usher…in her own words.
Recently there have been a few special services held in church to celebrate a wedding, a baptism and also a funeral.
Those of us who attend our church, including the Parochial Church Council (PCC), are pleased that the local community and those further afield have been able to celebrate these services in our church, particularly after what has been a rather challenging time since March 2020.
It’s inevitable that, in the countryside, the landscape changes from year to year. Rivers erode their banks, animals eat shrubs and the wind breaks branches and trees.
There is a row of trees near Ingram that I’ve been fond of photographing for several years now. When I took my first photo of them back in February 2012 there was snow on the ground:
Further to the UK Government’s recommendations regarding the current coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, Ingram Village Hall will be CLOSED until further notice. This is effective immediately.

We were recently contacted by Bennet Wiese, a young man from Braunschweig near Hanover in northern Germany.
A house owner there had passed away and so Bennet’s dad and stepmother were cleaning the house up. As they did so, they found a very interesting silver cup that was originally presented to ‘A. Little’ who was the winner of the Ingram Hill Race in the years 1923-1925. Unfortunately, nothing is known about the house owner other than he had lived in England for a period and that he was not ‘A. Little’.
Cycling out to Ingram yesterday, in the fields between the ‘whirlpool‘ on the River Breamish and the Ingram bridge, I saw my first skylark of the season. It was performing its typical display flight, climbing almost vertically up into the sky, all the time singing its elaborate and highly-distinctive song. Just makes you feel that Spring is on its way!
Len Glen-Davison, Chair of the Ingram Village Hall Committee, has been in touch to inform us that £200.00 was raised at the recent Ingram Fireworks Fun night. This has been given to support the work of local mountain rescue teams.
Following the successful refurbishment of Ingram Village Hall in July 2010 an official re-opening took place at the Family Fun Day and Barbecue on Sunday 29 August 2010.
