Ironman 70.3 Edinburgh triathlon visits Garvald

If you were enjoying a lazy Sunday morning on 2nd July you might have missed the triathletes cycling past the west end of the village as the Ironman 70.3 Edinburgh race took over local roads in East Lothian today. Here’s some of the competitors, many gave shout-outs and smiles to the small band of spectators that gathered to cheer them on.

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.

Voice your support for Morham Village Hall refurbishment

We’ve had an amazing response to our call for Letters of Support and signatures on our petition – thank you so much to those of you who’ve already got involved.

If those few of you who haven’t yet been in touch could possibly find two minutes to drop us a quick email of support. Every name and every email counts, so do please help if you can.

For those of you attending Morham Hall next week to vote, we intend to have a petition available for signature in the porch. Do please look out for it and add your name.

Meanwhile we’re continuing our architect meetings and drawing closer to putting the work out to tender; updates to follow in due course!

Best wishes,

The Morham Village Hall Trustees

DRAFT EMAIL IN SUPPORT FOR GRANT FUNDING, to be sent to morhamvillagehall@gmail.com

I am writing to express my support for the Viridor Credits funding application on behalf of Morham Village Hall to carry out the repairs and upgrades as highlighted in the recent survey by Ogilvy Chalmers. The hall is a vital heart of Morham community life and immensely valued, and I would be grateful if you would consider the application favourably.

Yours sincerely,

Yester Primary Summer Fair

We’ve got loads of things to keep everyone happy at this year’s Summer Fair!
Pop down to grab a bargain at the plant stall, tombolas and kids toys, clothes and books, then enjoy a tasty burger and treat yourself to a cake or ice-cream, before getting rid of all that sugary energy at the bouncy castle and outside games.

How can you help?

  • Offer just half an hour of your time to help sell things on a stall
  • Anytime Friday or Saturday morning, drop off potted plants, baking and bikes (to be sold on your behalf with a percentage going to the school)
  • COME ALONG!!! Bring your family and friends on the day – everyone is welcome! It’s a great school and community atmosphere, and loads of fun for kids and adults.
