Again, the farmer would appreciate a clear run through the village today (Monday 31st August) for the combine harvester.
Extra Wide Vehicle
Mr Harry Hamilton will be bringing a Combine Harvester through the village on Saturday (29th August) afternoon /evening, possibly Sunday morning.
If space can be made at the difficult / narrow parts of the village that would be very much appreciated by Harry.
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:
There will be a temporary display of the ‘Garvald in Lockdown’ photos in the front garden of 1 Council Houses, Garvald tomorrow afternoon (Saturday 22nd August) to coincide with the Garvald Door Display Day (in place of the village show).
This weekend marks the 75th anniversary of the final end to the Second World War with VJ Day. Many of the events which would have marked the occasion have been cancelled to to COVID-19.
There is a You Tube link, below, which has been prepared by Iain Clark of East Lothian Lieutenancy to mark the occasion:
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.”
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!
