Garvald Christmas Craft Day, 25th November

Update on Garvald Christmas Craft Day to be held on Sunday 25th November in Garvald Village Hall.

There will be a small number of stalls selling their wares; homemade jewellery, candles, cards etc.

We will have a Children’s craft table where cards and tree decorations can be made.

Janet Winter is going to make bottle lights – bring along an empty wine bottle or similar and for a small donation towards materials this can be turned into a beautiful light!

Mulled wine will be served along with tea, coffee and festive home baking – all donations of baking would be much appreciated.

If anyone else would like to demonstrate/teach a craft or activity for adults or children, please contact Sarah Ramsay on 830334.

Friday 9th November – Maudie

The fascinating life of Canadian folk artist, Maud Lewis. In this unlikely love story, reclusive fisherman Everett (Ethan Hawke) hires the fragile yet determined Maud (Sally Hawkins) as his housekeeper. Crippled with arthritis, Maud yearns to escape her family and realise her passion to paint. Everett finds himself falling in love and the film charts their simple life, his efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maud’s deep and abiding love for a difficult man and her amazing rise to fame.

Remembrance Day 11th November 2018

For those people who have been knitting poppies as part of the nationwide project to mark 100 years since the end of World War I, we will have our final session for collecting the poppies into a display on Monday 29th October from 6.30 pm until 8.30 pm in the Stables.

We already have several hundred poppies.

The poppies will be on display in Garvald and Morham Churches before and after Remembrance Day.

Arrangements for this especially significant Remembrance Day are on the attached poster.

Halloween party

Q: What is a ghost’s favourite pudding?
A: I-scream!

Best Halloween joke ever, courtesy of the Beano!

Kids, get your best Halloween outfits, jokes and tricks ready for the children’s Halloween party  and guising on Wednesday 31st October from 6-8pm.

If everyone could meet at the hall we will split up into two groups and do trick or treat around the village. This is a return to our tried-and-tested set-up which suits the trick-or-treaters and also suits residents who are not keen on a night of doorbell ringing.

We will return to the hall for some games, doughnuts and apple dooking!

Villagers, if you are happy for guisers to visit you, please leave a light on or a pumpkin at the door. If you are not available or don’t want a visit, please let us know or leave your porch/hall lights off. Thanks.
