Plea from the Community Council

A number of residents have expressed concern about dog poo being left on the paths and park within Garvald.I am aware that we have a number of dogs in the village and that owners take responsibility for clearing up after their dogs. However, given the reported incidents can I ask that owners remain attentive when out with their dogs please.Phillip

Chairman or Community Council

Alison and Neil Young – formerly of the Garvald Inn

Some residents of Garvald may remember Alison and Neil Young who ran the Garvald Inn some years back. Sadly, both Alison and Neil – more recently of Market Street, Haddington –  passed away last week and their (joint) funerals will be held at St Marys Parish Church on Thursday 14th April at 11am followed by an interment at St Martins Cemetery at 11.45am. The family have requested family flowers only. Donations to RSPCA and Dementia UK.

    Gifford Film Club Restarting with The Truffle Hunters

    Gifford Film Club is back
    £20 for 8 films or £5 payable at the door
    First film is 11 March – The Truffle Hunters

    and expensive white Alba truffle. They’re guided by a secret culture and training as well as by the noses of their cherished and expertly trained dogs.
    The demand for white truffles increases year after year and with the lack of young people taking up the mantle, the truffle hunters’ secrets are more coveted than ever
