Our Neighbourhood Block Party was a great success this year, building on previous years we’ve had them. There continue to be new families moving into our area and this has been a great way for us to get to know each other. A group of about 10 neighbours did the planning, with everybody taking on a few of the tasks. This made the event very simple to carry out and everybody is keen to have a neighbourhood block party every year to keep the momentum going. We invited the Community Policing office and we had live music and food which always draws people in. The Neighbourhood Small Grant was wonderful to have, because it got us moving to organized this community event which likely would not have happened otherwise. Thank you from all of us!!!

Neighbourhood Small Grants

We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.
