The 104th Avenue Neighbours had a great day/ evening of Christmas light hanging and pot luck bbq on Nov 24th. The weather was pouring in the morning but cleared up as the day pasted into the evening, so approx 45 + neighbours attended. There were many volunteers that helped organize the Christmas lights install, the coordination of the food, the tents, food tables, and etc. We met the new neighbours families and there seemed to be many new dogs. So others brought their dogs to visit with everyone. They discussed block watch and future neighbourhood get togethers.

Recycling plastic bags was the initial purpose of the project.
During the evolution of this project involving the building manager, we realized the main problem was still the environmental conscious of people. The organic bin was, every day, with plastic bags inside.
So, it was decided to start with HELPING people getting used to the habit of NOT DISPOSING PLASTIC INTO THE ORGANIC BIN.
The action and project were simple, and the initial results are being successful.

Hyland Village Party.

Fiasco Bros Studio, New Westminster

In 2017, a bunch of local musicians spent most of our evenings talking about our instruments on social media, but not playing them! Fast forward to New West Noise, powered by Neighbourhood Small Grants, whose generous support allowed us to secure a rehearsal studio, complete with all the equipment we need to play music together, at no cost to the participants. All were welcome, regardless of ability to perform, and a lot of fun was had.

On site at the Strata Complex

We lived at a townhouse complex with 20 units. Although is a small complex but poeple hardly had a chance to talked to each other. As a strata council member, we try to see what we can do to enhance the connection between neighbour. Not just the one next door but for the whole complex.

The 2018 Neighbourhood Small Grant is our first application to such grant for the strata. Which provide an opportunity to help get the neighbours together.

We had our wonderful annual block party. The turn out this year was not as large as we had planned on. The date was changed due to the neighbours being really busy during the summer. We all still had a fabulous time even tho we almost got rained out. The 1 exciting new adventure we are doing for our little community is a book barn/exchange. We are hoping to build it in the spring of 2019❤
