Community Kitchen Haddington exists to help reduce access deprivation and social isolation in the Haddington and Lammermuir areas, by providing delicious home cooked food to people and allowing for friendships to form.
It runs at Haddington Bowling Club on a Wednesday and Thursday from 12.30 pm and we ask for a donation of up to £4.00.
People from the Garvald and Morham area are very welcome and the organisation is happy to provide some transport there and back if required. Age or ability isn’t a barrier. People from all ages and abilities come together naturally. It’s a fantastic atmosphere and people are enjoying food and making friends naturally.
For more information, see their Facebook page, Our Community Kitchen East Lothian.

..due to the wet weather. We’ll try again late April/early May. Garvald Primary 7s.
We now have two refurbished picnic benches in the orchard in front of the Village Hall. The previous two had out lived their lifespan and were beyond repair. The Community Council has recovered the cost in full from East Lothian Council.
Car need a wash? Leaves need swept up? Logs need stacked?
Some of the primary 7s at Yester Primary School will be knocking on doors in Garvald on Sunday afternoon seeking tidying up tasks, in return for a small donation. This is part of fundraising towards the whole class residential trip away in June. They will be going to the Benmore outdoor learning centre in Argyll, where they will do lots of exciting, adventurous things away from parents and devices. Pupils are doing a variety of fundraising tasks in small groups to contribute to the overall fund. They will be under (loose) parental supervision – the idea being that the kids are doing the task themselves! All donations very gratefully received.
Any questions – get in touch with Jo or Kathleen via the contact form.
A reminder that the mobile Post Office visits Garvald Village Hall every Thursday 9.30-11.30. As part of this outreach service the Post Office accepts all mail and provides banking facilities for most high street banks (deposits and withdrawals, bill payments for council tax and rent).
