The Garvald Fun Day is on Saturday & we have lots of fun planned! The main event will be the race programme with the usual relay/egg & spoon/sack & 3-legged races for kids and/or adults. There will be small monetary rewards for 1st, 2nd & 3rd (sadly kids only). Then we’ll have our usual whole village junior then senior tug-of-wars to finish off. We will also have a 12m x 15m Bouncy Castle and a 20ft Giant Slide for the event. Side attractions will be a bake sale, a Beat the Goalie stall and a Welly Toss stall. An ice cream van will also be there part of the time. The event will finish with the traditional Boat Race at 4.00pm
How can you help?
Most importantly – please come along! This event is for the whole village – not just kids. Please join us for a fun-filled afternoon – and visiting family/friends are always welcome.
You can start working on your boat for the famous Boat Race that finishes off the day. Anything goes for your design – but no battery/electricity powered crafts please – all natural here! Entries from both children and adults welcome.
Can you help our Bake Stall by providing something tasty for us to sell? Any baked goods would be very much appreciated.
Start limbering up for an afternoon of races: child & adult categories, so open to everyone. And start practising your welly-throwing & football skills for the Beat the Goalie & Welly Throwing Tournaments. Small monetary prizes available for races (kids only) – and a huge amount of glory for the winners of the Tournaments.
There’s still time if you want to join our team of volunteers. Please contact me on the form below if you want to help – or just let me know.
Please put this date in your diary for our wonderful village Fun Day. Lots of exciting events are planned as part of the afternoon and it would be great to see you there. More information to follow….

Just a notice to say a combine harvester will be making its way through Garvald tomorrow (Monday) morning.
Could we please ask for cars not to be parked on the Main Street so the combine itself can get passed.
