On Sunday, June 24th, neighbours from the Glenbrook Drive area of Richmond joined together for food and conversation. The weather was looking a little bit unsettled but the rain held off long enough for around 70 people to come out of their homes and join in on the fun.

Everyone brought some food to contribute to our gathering and M&M Meat Shops (Francis and Gilbert Road location) provided hamburgers and hot dogs. The kids played basketball on the street with some of the teenagers and young adults leading the charge. Some old friendships were joined and new ones were found.

Nurturing Health & Wellness in Women – Our Story
The Neighbourhood Small Grants have been a vibrant part of the community for many years. We have watched a variety of activities light up neighbourhoods and bring people together. This year we wanted to be a part of the excitement and create opportunities for women in our neighbourhood to connect, share and grow their personal goals.

Our neighbourhood BBQ took place on Saturday September 22nd. It was a huge success! This was our first annual BBQ and we hoped the weather would hold and people would show. Our fears were relieved the morning of the event when the sky cleared and that afternoon a big crowd showed. Our neighbours and their families enjoyed good food and conversation. Residents learned about our community garden, BlockWatch, and our council gathered valuable insight on what they might like to see in the future to keep people connected ( A mahjong club, running club, and badminton net.)

With the increasing density and cost of living in inner-city Vancouver, is there still a place for community gardens or even urban farms? In this free walking tour, starting at Thornton Park and ending at Charleson Park, we stopped by a few different community gardens, urban farms, & an urban orchard to discuss the various models of community/communal gardens and their place in the livelihood of the communities living in this area.

This year my idea was a summer walking club with yoga classes and to end it off with a end of the Summer potluck and BBQ with Movie Night. My idea was to gather all the neighbours for a 45-60 minute walking and 30 min yoga session with an instructor. Everyone took the opportunity to meet each other and get to know them better. Each time we walked to a different park and while the moms enjoyed the yoga the kids played at the park, included with snacks and drinks. At the end of the project we did a end of the Summer potluck and BBQ with a Movie Night.

Code Club offers a fun and interactive way for children to build valuable life skills such as logical thinking, teamwork and collaboration skills, as well as engaging them in learning more about the technology they use every day.

We provide easy to follow coding projects which help children learn Scratch, HTML & CSS and Python by making games, animations and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow children to grow their understanding of digital making.

Code Club takes place the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month.

Memorial Peace Park
August 24 2018

Over the summer, a group of artists and musicians organized a successful Wild Salmon, Drums and Art event in Maple Ridge’s downtown Memorial Peace Park. Everyone in the community was welcome to join the circle led by Sto:lo Elder Eddie Gardner for storytelling and an opportunity to learn about traditional Indigenous drumming. Red Fox Creative Café art activities and a salmon celebration were included in the festivities. It is hoped by all who attended that this community gathering will become an annual tradition in our downtown park.
