Well done to everyone who came along to the Garvald Christmas Dinner last night and provided such a feast for us to share. Special thanks to our VIP guests Jean Waddell and Dorothy Nisbet who started the tradition 50 years ago, and Hurray for Hazel and Father Mark who made the speeches. The whole event was masterminded by Liz Leather with a trusty squad of helpers.
There are still a couple of dishes and serving spoons to collect – Saturday around 1pm just before the children’s party would probably be best or else contact your favourite Village Hall committee member.
These documents are now laid out in Garvald Church which is open every day, and available for any member of the public to scrutinise. They will be available there for the next 30 days
Please see the attached Agenda, below, for the Garvald and Morham Community Council meeting on Monday 4th December at 7.30pm in Morham Village Hall.
GARVALD & MORHAM COMMUNITY COUNCIL
COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP PROPOSAL FOR ULTRA FAST FIBRE BROADBAND IN GARVALD & MORHAM
Some parts of our area have fibre broadband but most do not. The Community Council is exploring the possibility of a community project to install ultra fast broadband. This will depend on government subsidies but may involve community funding.
SUFFICIENT LOCAL SUPPORT IS ESSENTIAL FOR A VIABLE PROJECT. Therefore, we need to know your opinion.
For information about the project and/or to register your interest, please contact community councillor, Roger Harris, using the contact form, below:
The Haddington Community Choir will put on their fourth performance in St. Mary’s Church in Haddington, this Saturday, 2nd December between 5-6pm.
Admission is free! Donations collected for Keep the Heid Haddington.
We hope to see you there!
