Your Village Hall needs you!

Spring has sprung and our Village Hall is in need of some well deserved TLC.
On Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May we are having community volunteering days (2pm to 5pm). Can you help with some sanding, filling, painting, weed clearance etc…?
A schedule of all the tasks and tools will be posted on the noticeboard outside the hall so you can see what is needed. Please come equipped with tools and gloves.
Tea and biscuits at half time! Thanks in advance and we look forward to seeing you all.

Plea from the Community Council

A number of residents have expressed concern about dog poo being left on the paths and park within Garvald.I am aware that we have a number of dogs in the village and that owners take responsibility for clearing up after their dogs. However, given the reported incidents can I ask that owners remain attentive when out with their dogs please.Phillip

Alison and Neil Young – formerly of the Garvald Inn

Some residents of Garvald may remember Alison and Neil Young who ran the Garvald Inn some years back. Sadly, both Alison and Neil – more recently of Market Street, Haddington –  passed away last week and their (joint) funerals will be held at St Marys Parish Church on Thursday 14th April at 11am followed by an interment at St Martins Cemetery at 11.45am. The family have requested family flowers only. Donations to RSPCA and Dementia UK.

Village Show: Saturday 27th August – seeds for kids!

SEEDS will shortly be available for children to plant, to enter into the Village Show.

  • Under 5s: cress (for egg shell ‘cress heads’) – these just take a couple of weeks
  • 5-12: dwarf sunflowers ‘Teddy Bear’ – these need to be planted soonish (late April/mid May) – A great Easter holiday project

I will put these in a ‘seeds tin’ at the village hall noticeboard at the start of Easter break. Please help yourself.

Here is the Show schedule, which you can also find on the GHS page of the website (hard copies to follow):
