The GVHT AGM will be held in the hall on Thursday 16th November at 7:30pm. All residents are encouraged to attend for an update on this important part of our community.As the AGM is not expected to last too long we have taken the opportunity of following it with a presentation from Haddington Camera Club which I’m sure will be interesting and informative.Wine and cheese will also be on offer, making this a community occasion not to be missed. Hopefully this will attract a good turn out. Do please come along.

A Successful Sale & Coffee Afternoon

A very big thank you to all who took part in organising and attending the Village Hall Table Sale and Coffee Afternoon on Sunday afternoon.  It was great to see the hall so busy with many people turning up to browse the great variety of items for sale and sample the tasty bakes.

The event was a big success and raised just under £380 for the hall!  We’re sure there will be more of these events to come in the future.


Garvald Village Hall Coffee Afternoon & Table Top Sale

Following the success of the fundraising coffee afternoon a few months back, Isla has decided to host a second on Sunday 8th October, 2-4pm. 

We have decided to combine it with a table top sale.  So, if you have some unwanted items that you have been looking to sell on, why not book a table?  Tables will cost £10 with the proceeds going to the Village Hall funds.  Takings from the sale itself will be kept by the seller.


Baking donations for the coffee afternoon would be very much welcomed.  Please contact Shirley on 830270 if you would like to donate.

Tables for the sale can be booked by calling Sarah on 830334.

We look forward to seeing you there!
