Plant Sale & Coffee Afternoon Success

Thank you to all who came along today and bought and/or contributed to the plant sale.  So far £116 has been raised for the Village Hall.  There are still some plants available to purchase which have been left outside the hall.   If you would like to buy any of these, please just pop your money through the letterbox at Whitelaws.

Thanks also to those who donated and/or purchased cakes and treats and teas/coffees.  A total of £76 was raised for the Village Hall and it was lovely to see everyone enjoying their refreshments in the sunshine.  A successful day!


Plant sale & coffee afternoon – Sat 18th May

A reminder that the Plant Sale will be this coming Saturday, 18th May at 2-3.30pm, outside the village hall.  Please drop off any donations on the day after 1pm, or in advance to Malcolm at Whitelaws.  Last year the sale was well supported and made £230 for the hall!

Isla Evatt and team will be in the hall at the same time selling teas, coffees and cakes to raise funds for the hall.  Any donations of baking would be appreciated and can also be dropped off at the hall on the day after 1pm or in advance to Isla at Burnbrae.

Garvald Horticultural Society – Village Show: Saturday 27th August 2022

We are very hopeful that we can go ahead with Garvald Village Show this year. Here is the 2022 schedule: 2022 Garvald Village Show Schedule

The Garvald Horticultural Society stages a village show in the fourth week of August. Participants can exhibit their best blooms, fruit and vegetables, baking, handicrafts, photography and children’s entries. There is also a pet show in the orchard. It’s a friendly show which is open to all; new competitors welcome.

The deadline for entries is 10am on the morning of the Show and the Show opens at 2pm. Good luck!

Decorated Doors Day – Saturday 28th August, 2-5pm

In place of Garvald Village Show this year we invite you to ‘show’ your produce at your doorstep! Decorate your door however you wish; bunting, pots of plants, vase of flowers, basket of veg, bunting, jam jars – get creative!

Have doors ready by 2pm – there will also be ice cream tubs on offer for kids. We very much hope to be back next year with the ‘proper’ Show!

Show set up – Thursday 7-8pm

We are setting up for the Show on Thursday evening – all help with shifting tables gratefully appreciated. Staging on Friday is 7-9pm, and Saturday 8-10am.

Please bring any donations of baking and raffle prizes on the morning of the show, and leave them in the kitchen.

Don’t forget that if you have anything you have made or grown but does not fit the Show categories, bring it along for the display table. Given tough growing conditions this year the perfectly imperfect veg category may be popular!

Here’s some inspiration…looking forward to seeing you at the Show. Jo (on behalf of Garvald Horticultural Society Committee)
