Lammermuir Festival Concert Sunday 17th September

The Lammermuir Festival concert (at the village hall this Sunday 17th from 3-5pm) is sold out. This is great news and we are looking forward to hosting this fantastic music festival.

Please be aware that there will be a lot of additional cars in the village looking for parking spaces during this period on Sunday afternoon. Thank you in advance for your patience and support.

Children’s Halloween and Christmas parties

Do you have young children in the village? In true Garvald style, Jo (and helpers) are looking to hand over the job of arranging the Halloween children’s party and guising and the Christmas children’s party. There really isn’t much to it (especially if a few pitch in).

Please get in touch via the contact form (or call Jo 830685) if interested. Thanks!
