Proposed Dates for GMCC Meetings in 2022

7th February

4th April

6th June

22nd August

3rd October

5th December

All the above are on the first Monday of the month with the exception of August which, as previous years, is later due to school summer holidays.

All meetings to be held at 7.30pm and, at this stage, all in Garvald Village Hall until Morham Hall is back in business. Lets hope that by our meeting in February we are able to all meet up rather than ZOOM !!!!

This information can also be found on the GMCC page.

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.

    GMCC Seeks New Members

    Garvald and Morham Community Council seeks new voices / members of our community to represent us all and help make all our lives better:

    – meet with ELC elected Councillors on a regular basis to raise questions specific to our area

    – local Police and Council Officers invited to join meetings as needed

    – help with local response to county-wide plans and priorities

    We are also lucky to manage the application process of a substantial annual funding pot from the Community Windfarm. The Community Council seeks to encourage local projects that would benefit our community.

    Applications open on 30th August.
