Manor Hill is Nearly Complete – Update

You’ve been asking us for a while about how the progress of Manor Hill is going. It’s been a challenge gathering together resources in a community with limited funding from the government. Joan, the project manager, said yesterday that after being at a standstill for so long, progress is well underway and will set to be finished in August. She thanked everyone for their patience and assistance.

There is still several bits left to make the building complete. There is still several jobs left to complete to ensure the project is successfully completed on time. Joan has requested us to post the following on our website to help meet strict deadlines.

Seeking anyone with an electric chainsaw

We are looking for electric chainsaws ONLY – be aware Manor Hill has been a project of environmentalism. The community is actively doing it’s best the preserve the surrounding area and to create a safe and environmentally friendly spot. The team has been following the latest Green Tips and we hope that all future projects will involve this level of protection.

Stay out of Mayson’s Pond

For an disclosed amount of time, Mayson’s Pond will remain closed. Local authorities have claimed that the water is unsafe due to torrential downpour in the area and it will not risk the safety of the community by advising swimming. If you are looking for a spot to swim this summer to escape the heat, nearby Surrey Hill Reserve is another option. Be mindful that due to the shifting weather patterns, other reserves may close without warning. Also bring plenty of fresh water with you. Authorities have already responded to 22 cases of heat stroke this summer.

Join us for a final fundraiser

We will have one last fundraiser to secure funding for the final touches of Manor Hill. There will be raffle tickets and a rap off by local children. Entry will be $5 paid prior to entering the office (cash only) and the raffle tickles will cost $1 each of 10 for $5. Please join us!
