Gifford Sports and Tennis Courts Feasibility Study

 

Moneys totalling £1,750 were raised to fund a feasibility study to see whether or not it would be possible to site an all-weather, multi-purpose sports facility, (including tennis), at Yester Primary School.

 

Three comprehensive quotes were received by the East Lothian Council and we selected the lowest one, (£1,750). The work was carried out and £1,750 was duly paid to the East Lothian Council on November 11th 2016.

About Gifford

 

Yester House

Gifford, in the Parish of Yester is first mentioned in the
Anglo-Saxon period.

In the 17th century a large estate and farming community flourished after the first Marquess of Tweeddale had enclosed the Yester Estate with a 7 mile wall and laid out a park within it.

He demolished the old settlement of Bothans which lay near his house, and the village grew outside the gates to accommodate estate workers.

The name Gifford derives from a Norman family.
