We’re looking for new help with running Garvald Village Show next year, which is due to take place on Saturday 27th August. If you enjoyed the door displays this could be for you! Our next meeting will take place Tuesday 5th October 7.30pm. Come along to the village hall to find out more or get in touch via the contact form.

Many thanks to those who kindly contributed produce to the stall outside the Village Hall, during our Decorated Doors day.
Thanks to the generosity of those who then did the buying we managed to raise a much needed £204 for village hall funds.
Hopefully everyone agrees that it added to the overall enjoyment of a lovely Garvald day.
Whoever organised the weather deserves a special thanks.
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.

Hopefully everybody is looking forward to the Decorated Doors Day on Saturday 28th August. The annual Garvald Flower Show usually includes a sale of produce and it has been suggested that we could do the same thing this year to raise much needed funds for the Village Hall. Any plants or produce or home-baking that you are willing to donate, can be brought along to a stall outside the Village Hall from 1 pm onwards. Many thanks in advance.

In the past few weeks, you may have spotted some strange men combing over local fields with metal detectors. They are archaeology enthusiasts Mariusz and Dariusz who are absolutely dedicated to their search for times past. So far, they have uncovered all sorts of coins, horse trappings, musket balls, buttons and buckles. A couple of interesting photos of a Roman coin (AD130), a Russian coin (AD1772) and various assorted items are shown below. If you want to know what lies in YOUR field ( or even your back garden) please fill in the contact form.
This key has been found. Please fill in the contact form if you would like to claim it
