Inveresk Village Gardens 

At this time next year Inveresk Village Gardens will be opening as part of Scotland’s Garden Scheme to raise money for a variety of charities. There are some magnificent gardens here which will always attract visitors, but one of the advantages of a village opening is that smaller gardens can be included. These would not warrant a detour to be seen as a single garden on an afternoon out but can offer hope to the many other people, who live with a postage stamp sized garden or patio, as to what can be done with a small space.

If you would consider opening your garden next year at this time please contact me. The Scotland’s Garden Scheme has run for many years and has raised thousands of pounds for a variety of good causes

Air Cadets Lunch

I am hosting a lunch to assist the Air Cadets (297 Squadron, Musselburgh) on Saturday 17 June 2017 from 12.00 noon – 12.30 p.m. in St Michael’s Church Hall, Dalrymple Loan.

We have a limited number (120) tickets and I wonder if you would be kind enough to let the Village people know of this event. We would appreciate your support.
Attached is a poster for your information.

Kind regards

Heads and Tales Book Group

At last week’s meeting we discussed a Scottish classic, The Cone-Gatherers by Robin Jenkins.

The story is set on a Scottish estate during the Second World War. The main theme is about good and evil in mankind.

The general view was that it made grim reading. Within that there were some people who thought it was very well written, especially in regard to the rural background, but others found it just too ‘dour and miserable’!

I have promised a more cheerful topic for my next choice.
