Garvald Window Cleaning

John, who owns the window cleaning company that will start working in Garvald, will visit the village on Friday 25th September to clean windows for all those who responded to the website post (using the contact form) a couple of weeks ago.
There are a couple of people who did not put their address on the contact form; therefore, either contact the website again with your address or just try to catch John next Friday.
John has advised that he will charge the first clean on Douglas’ prices but will assess his own charges once he has completed the first clean for each home.
If clients aren’t available for payment on the day, he will put a slip through the door with his bank details.

New Garvald Bench

Sitting Pretty

You may have noticed that we have a new Bench at the top end of the village. The bench was arranged through the Community Council and paid for by the Crystal Rig Fund. Permission to site the bench was approved by Wemyss & March Estate who own the grass verge that the bench sits on. Please enjoy the view looking down the village after your stroll.

Window Cleaning Service

There is a window cleaner who is happy to come to Garvald if he/she can secure at least six households. No commitment, as yet, but please use the contact form, below, if you would be interested in this:

Douglas Findlay – Window Cleaner

The collection for Douglas raised a fantastic £800! Douglas has now received the funds and the online card. He has expressed his gratitude to everyone who contributed and he hopes to be able to visit the village and thank his customers, in person.

An extract from his email:

“I obviously don’t know what lies ahead of me in the coming months but I do know that I will pay a visit to all my customers and thank them individually. I think it’s the only way it can be done ,and I know it will probably take me more than one night to get through all my customers. There are some times when words can be difficult to find, but it not on this occasion A HUGE BIG ENORMOUS THANK YOU.”

Artists Required for the Next Garvald Art Show!

It’s been several years since the last art show. Sadly we have lost some artists since then; however, we may have gained some amongst the newer residents of the village.

If you, or anyone you know in the village, are keen to take part in another art show please contact Tim Flinn at Beech Cottage or use the contact form, below.

About ten artists are needed to make the show affordable and five are already interested. Spread the word!
