DOOR DISPLAYS

Garvald was looking especially lovely yesterday thanks to everyone’s efforts with decorating their doors with bunting, produce and hobbies (including Jurassic display). And especially good to see everyone enjoying the sun and catching up. Here are a few pics – the full set are on the ‘Garvald Growers Makers and Bakers’ facebook group. I counted 30 doors – hope I didn’t miss any! Garvald Show will (fingers very crossed) be back next year.

Decorated Doors Day – Saturday 28th August, 2-5pm

In place of Garvald Village Show this year we invite you to ‘show’ your produce at your doorstep! Decorate your door however you wish; bunting, pots of plants, vase of flowers, basket of veg, bunting, jam jars – get creative!

Have doors ready by 2pm – there will also be ice cream tubs on offer for kids. We very much hope to be back next year with the ‘proper’ Show!

Door Display Day – Tomorrow 2pm

It’s the ‘not the village show day’ tomorrow. Feeling bereft? Decorate your door instead – bunting, pots of plants, vase of flowers, basket of veg, art work, jam jars, sewing – get creative! Have doors ready by 2pm and for the kids – a door discovery trail (sweets on successful completion – bring a pencil).

Village Show and seedling exchange

Sadly we have decided to cancel this year’s Village Show. In line with other shows in East Lothian we have taken this decision with the safety of members and the public at the forethought of our minds. It may be possible to do something to celebrate the efforts of our ‘lockdown gardening’ – we will consider this nearer the time. We will carry the 2020 schedule over to 2021.

Seedlings – next Saturday (30th) we were due to have a seedling exchange at the hall. Instead we suggest that if you have any spare seeds/seedlings/plants to leave them out at your door/gate.

Strawberry plants – we do have strawberry plants for children to grow on for the Show. If you would still like a strawberry plant please let Jo know via the contact form or the ‘Garvald Growers, Makers, Bakers’ Facebook Group.

Happy gardening, making and baking!
