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!

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/zephyr@gmccbroadband.org)

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.
