Fertile soils and artisans fed the weekly mart.

In ancient Black Castle’s shadow; the kirk, its heart.

North Sea in the distance but firmly on the ground.

Hid among the Lammermuirs, Oldhamstocks will be found.

Oldhamstocks is a small village on the edge of the county of East Lothian. 

The purpose of this website is to keep the local community and anyone else who is interested, up to date with all things Oldhamstocks!

Oldhamstocks Community Association (OCA)

Oldhamstocks Community Association is a group of volunteers, who are elected from the community, by the community. OCA is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

The committee can have up to twelve members at any one time. Each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), the entire committee officially stands down and new member volunteers are called for. Volunteers may be new members, or people that have previously been on the committee. After the AGM, the new committee assigns the named roles of Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer, as it sees fit. The next AGM is due in November 2023.
