Sessions are offered at the HGR Mews and Paul Reynolds Community Centres.

Sit and Knit
Bring your pattern, your wool, your needles and a friend or family member and come 'sit and knit' with others at the Paul Reynolds Community Centre. This is a drop in program for $2 per person, however we'll save you a spot if you call us ahead of time at 576-8631.

Walk and Wheel
Get walking or wheeling this winter at some of our Community Centres! These indoor mobility opportunities are open to all ages and abilities and are FREE of charge with no pre-registration required. We ask you bring indoor footwear and clean the wheels or feet of mobility aids before entering the gym; bringing a filled water bottle is a great idea as well.
