Gifford Cubs Supported by GMCC

Gifford Cubs, who comprise children from the wider Yester catchment, recently benefited from some funding from the GMCC to access watersports trips to the Whiteadder Watersports Centre. Gifford Cubs Leaders have recently expressed their thanks for the support and sent these photos.

As well as having fun, an ongoing relationship has now been established between Gifford Cubs and Whiteadder Watersports Centre and some Cubs parents have also gone on to use the centre for their own activities.

    ‘Thank You!’ to the GMCC

    Huge thank you to the ‘outgoing’ Community Council who held their last meeting of this period in the sunny Orchard of Garvald Village Hall on Monday.

    All members are encouraged to seek re-election so this may not be their last ever but it’s a good moment to extend our gratitude to these volunteers who give time and energy on all our behalf.

    Thanks to Phillip, Anna, Ian, Ian and Hazel.
