Garvald Fun Day

A quick reminder that the fun day is this Saturday so please come along and join in the fun! Remember your boats for the boat race and get ready for the races at 2pm and the football at 3pm.

We could do with some helpers for the refreshments and stalls as well some home baking and raffle prizes. If you can help with any of this please get in touch with Penny (07724243263/

Garvald Fun Day : Races & Football

At the fun day on the 12th of August we’re hoping to organise races and football games for children & adults. The plan is for a children’s staggered start (based on age) hill race at 2pm followed by an adult’s race up the same hill. At 3pm we hope to have a children’s football game followed by a game for adults.

The hill race will be a mad dash from the bottom of the Hall drive to the top of the hill behind the Hall and back again. We’ll decide on teams for the football games on the day but will aim for a “Garvald v The Rest of the World” approach if possible. There will be prizes for the winners of the races and medals for all the kids taking part in the football games.

In order for this to be a success we need people to take part and get a feel for the numbers, so please come along and join the fun, spread the word and contact the people below if interested. Obviously both the races and football are open to everyone – girls & boys of all abilities.

Garvald Fun Day 12th August – Tombola

The Garvald Fun Day organisers would be delighted to receive any donations towards the tombola stall. We are looking for items in good condition for both adults and children so any unwanted gifts/smellies and toys would be great. You can drop-off your donations to Shirley Evatt, Jo Robertson or Viki Freeland or alternatively call Shirley on 830270 to arrange drop-off/collection, ideally by 5th August.

Wine Tasting Cancelled

The wine tasting event planned for this Saturday (10th) in Garvald village hall is cancelled due to lack of numbers. A similar event will be arranged for some time in the Autumn.

Reminder : Wine Tasting

We need to ensure sufficient numbers to make the planned wine tasting viable, so if you are planning to come please contact Kelly asap.

Garvald Fun Day

We’re looking at holding a Fun Day in Garvald Park on Saturday 12 August from 1.00pm to 4.00pm. What we need to know is:

  1. Are you keen for this to happen?
  2. Would anyone like to help (manning stalls, organise events etc)?
  3. We’re meeting up at the pub at 3.30pm on Sunday 30 April to have a quick chat & plan out what we would want the Fun Day to look like – would you like to be involved in the planning?

Feedback would be great – if you would love the Fun Day to be held but are not able to help then that’s absolutely fine – but we’d love your opinion. If you’re happy to help for an hour or two on a stall then that would be fantastic – please let us know. And if you want to help with the organising then please come along to the pub next Sunday.

This is a great opportunity for the village to get together and have lots of fun. I hope we are able to make it happen. Please contact Penny via the contact form on the website or by telephone – 07724243263 – or we’ll see you in the pub next Sunday!
