Second hand sale?

A message from Sylvia Wood:

Would anyone in the village be interested in doing an ‘Amsterdam King’s Day’ type event in Garvald, where everyone turns out to sell their second-hand wares on the streets, or from their gardens perhaps? Easier than taking it all to the hall and back again if not sold. The village hall could be the refreshment centre? Please let Sylvia know or send a message via the contact form if you are interested.

What a night?! Many thanks …

This year’s Christmas dinner was superbly attended. Many thanks to all those who came along. And even bigger thanks to those who brought food to share. Viki Freedland’s speech was excellent. And it was as lovely as ever to hear Father Mark’s respond on behalf of the Community at Nunraw. Special mention also to the novelty-jumper-clad “staff” from Knox Accademy’s Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Not only did they work dilligently, but they brought a touch of youthful freshness to proceedings. Well done to them, and their weighty tips jar was well deserved.

Should you have any reflections on the evening, or feedback, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of the organising committee – Katy, Trudi, Anne and/or Liz. Cheers!

(Nearly) time to eat, drink and be merry …

Wow, what a lot of village Christmas Dinner replies?! Many thanks to all of you. Looks like there’s going to be a swell turnout. Novelty jumpers and antler alicebands at the ready …

In a slight change to tradition, the event is going to be “staffed” this year by a group of youngsters raising funds for their Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition. As they will undoubtedly do an amazing job, and deserve a massive tip, it would be great if attendees could remember to bring their purses and/or wallets with them on the night. Many thanks in advance.


Had enough of Black Friday?

Well think about Christmas instead! And specifically, the village meal on Thursday 8th December from 7pm … A number of people have already RSVP-ed – thank-you very much. But even more haven’t so it felt like high time for a wee prompt – *nudge nudge nudge* Please pop reply slips and monies into the letter box at The Rowans over the next week or so. Many thanks in advance.

Time to talk turkey …

Now that the weather has finally turned, and it’s not too depressing to think about Christmas, it’s time to let you all know that the annual village dinner will take place on Thursday 8th December in the village hall. Formal invites to follow of course, but please “save the date” for now!
