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 hand your RSVPs and money to Chiara and Richard at Broomfield House as soon as possible so we can confirm numbers for the Christmas Dinner on 7th December.
And don’t forget to jazz up your Christmas outfit – 1973 style – in honour of the 50th Anniversary!
There will be a short Remembrance service at Garvald Church tomorrow – outside in front of the War Memorial.
We will gather at 10.45 am and there will be teas and coffees afterwards in The Stables
A collection will be taken in aid of Poppy Scotland

Thursday 16th November 7.30 pm
The GVHT AGM will be held in the hall on Thursday 16th November at 7:30pm. All residents are encouraged to attend for an update on this important part of our community. As the AGM is not expected to last too long we have taken the opportunity of following it with a presentation from Haddington Camera Club which I’m sure will be interesting and informative. Wine and cheese will also be on offer, making this a community occasion not to be missed. Hopefully this will attract a good turn out. Do please come along.
Thursday 7th December is the date for your diary.
And it’s a very special year – this will be the 50th Christmas Dinner! The first one was back in 1973.
More details to follow soon.
