Calling All Wynndel Dwellers

Saturday, May 12th, from 8 am – 1 pm, marks the first Wynndel Hall Community Park Spring Cleanup!

Saturday, May 12th, from 8 am – 1 pm, marks the first Wynndel Hall Community Park Spring Cleanup! Bring your family and friends and join the members of the Wynndel Adhoc School Committee to brighten and clean up our future Community Park, formerly known as the Wynndel School.

Bring your pruners, rakes, gardening gloves, and family and come join in a fun day of beautifying our newest community oasis, followed by a complimentary BBQ for all registered volunteers.

Tasks will include light tree trimming, clearing away growth from fences, and tidying up a flower bed. Please dress for the weather, we will be there rain or shine! Register as a volunteer on our Facebook page, Wynndel Community Centre, or email mdurnin@telus.net or call Marg Durnin at 250 402-8108!

The Wynndel Adhoc School Committee (WASC) is a newly formed auxiliary of the Wynndel Hall Board (WHB). WASC is dedicated to represent the interests of the community by establishing a voice of the new and existing demographics in the Wynndel region and to utilize the land acquisition for everyone’s benefit.

Wynndel citizens are a dedicated group, many of which rallied together to work with the WHB to assist in the purchase of the retired Wynndel School property. The WASC is currently developing its short and long-term goals for the community park and is welcoming new members who are interested in developing the property to its full potential. Recently a grant was approved and we are excited to be installing picnic tables.

Feedback on the new property has been varied and includes putting in a community garden, a wheelchair accessible dog park, retaining the playing field and putting in an upgraded playground. Once the community has given feedback we will work in phases to achieve our goals through community partnership and grants.

Come get inspired by our beautiful grounds and help envision and build a community resource to be proud of. Even if you are unable to physically help, you are welcome to say hi, grab a coffee and provide feedback. Many of the committee and WHB members will be in attendance to answer questions and hear comments. Please register by Friday the 4th for the lunch, which will be held in our Arts Centre behind the hall at noon. Children are welcome under adult supervision and all persons attending must sign in.
