Thank you to the local tractor-wielding farming community for their tireless digging out of snowdrifts over the last couple of days. A council gritter was able to access Garvald yesterday for the first time in several days and provide access, with care, to Haddington.
Huge thanks to Jackie McCreery at Yester Dairy, Alistair Kerr for collecting milk supplies and Davie F for venturing to Haddington for supplies. Thanks also to everyone who is helping out with emergency planning and supporting the village. Fantastic to see the community pulling together so brilliantly.
Garvald village hall is open to anyone who wants a change of scene but will probably close around 4pm. Thanks for your support.
In the event of a power cut, if you have no alternative heating source, please make your way to the village hall and we will provide assistance.
Our understanding is that there is no milk or bread available in Haddington. Car high snow drifts are blocking the roads. Please stay home in the warm and do not attempt to travel.
Message from Penny Short on behalf of Garvald & Morham Community Council:
Hopefully the weather will start to improve over the next few days but please can anyone who needs any help, assistance or emergency supplies let us know via the garvald.org.uk Facebook page or here on the website via the contact form.
Please let us know if anyone with heavy duty 4×4’s can help bring in supplies (if the roads are passable tomorrow).
Also, we will try to arrange an emergency milk delivery from Yester Farm Dairy sometime on Friday or Saturday, subject to road conditions. More details on how to order some milk will be posted here and on Garvald’s Facebook page.
We have a very caring community so I know we will all be checking up on any vulnerable neighbours but if anyone is concerned or needs assistance, please also let us know.
The village hall is Garvald is open from 10am and the Morham Hall is open from 10.30 on Friday if you need to get out of the house for a while.
