ELC Star Awards 2017

East Lothian Council’s Star Awards 2017 will take place in December this year. The awards identify and reward excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public. Every year the number of nominations for each category from council staff and members of the public has grown. There are two constants – the pride and sense of achievement felt by the winners and shortlisted entrants and the rigour with which the entries are judged. Our awards reward effectiveness and excellence across all areas of our business and celebrate high quality service, creativity and innovation.
If any of East Lothian Council’s employees are stars in your eyes, why not nominate them.  It’s your way, and ours, of saying thank you for a job well done.
Closing date is Friday 20 October

Garvald website hosting

Just to let you know that we will be switching to a new website hosting company in the near future. Please bear with us if there are any teething problems but hopefully it will all go smoothly and you won’t even notice.

Village Hall AGM

The Garvald Village Hall Trust AGM is on Wednesday 11 October 2017 at 7pm in Village Hall.

Come and join us for some cheese and wine and see a slide show of Village Events over the past year along with some historical images of the village.

We look forward to seeing you all.


Lammermuir Festival Concert Sunday 17th September

The Lammermuir Festival concert (at the village hall this Sunday 17th from 3-5pm) is sold out. This is great news and we are looking forward to hosting this fantastic music festival.

Please be aware that there will be a lot of additional cars in the village looking for parking spaces during this period on Sunday afternoon. Thank you in advance for your patience and support.

Children’s Halloween and Christmas parties

Do you have young children in the village? In true Garvald style, Jo (and helpers) are looking to hand over the job of arranging the Halloween children’s party and guising and the Christmas children’s party. There really isn’t much to it (especially if a few pitch in).

Please get in touch via the contact form (or call Jo 830685) if interested. Thanks!
