    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!

    Garvald Village Hall Update

    The Garvald Village Hall Committee want to provide an update for the village on the hall and upcoming events and actions.

    The committee are currently working with a range of building specialists to obtain surveys and quotations for remedial work required to ensure the longevity of the building for use by the village for many years to come. The works will be scheduled around regular bookings as far as possible and plenty of notice will be given.

    There are five weddings happening in the hall this year which is wonderful as it is super to see the hall being used for such happy occasions; the weddings also provide essential funding.

    The committee would also like to remind villagers that they are available to facilitate and support with any events individuals or small groups wish to arrange. Some examples that have happened in the past and some current suggestions are as follows:

    Fancy dress party
    Formal ball
    Burns supper
    Table Jumble sale
    Village Monthly Sunday lunch

    If anyone is interested in taking on arranging a Village Event, please do contact the GVHT committee. You can use the contact form, below:

      Well done to everyone who came along to the Garvald Christmas Dinner last night and provided such a feast for us to share. Special thanks to our VIP guests Jean Waddell and Dorothy Nisbet who started the tradition 50 years ago, and Hurray for Hazel and Father Mark who made the speeches. The whole event was masterminded by Liz Leather with a trusty squad  of helpers.

      There are still a couple of dishes and serving spoons to collect – Saturday around 1pm just before the children’s party would probably be best or else contact your favourite Village Hall committee member.
