Next Meeting: Thursday 18th May

The next meeting of the Grandview Heritage Group will take place this Thursday, 18th May, beginning at 7:00pm.   We will meet at the Britannia Boardroom in the Info Centre on Napier Street.

As usual, we have an open agenda but we will certainly be discussing the regular Monthly Neighbourhood update, our plans for No Car Day, the plaque for the Oldest house in Grandview, and celebrating GHG’s 6th anniversary. No doubt there will be additional matters to attract our attention.

Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing many of you on Thursday!

Meeting Announcement

The regular monthly meeting for April has been cancelled.  We will meet again on Thursday 18th May.  A reminder and a review of the agenda will be published closer to that date.

We have cancelled the April meeting in order that members may attend what we believe will be a very interesting talk on “Learning and Community Growth” given by Asa Kachan, head librarian at Halifax Public Library.  The talk is part of the Britannia Renewal Speakers’ Series and will take place in Britannia Library at 7:00pm on Thursday 20th April.

Hope to see you there.

Next Meeting: 16th March

Yes, the next GHG meeting is just a couple of days away!

We meet at 7:00pm on Thursday in the Britannia Board Room on Napier.

  • What’s Happening in the Neighbourhood?  Eric’s monthly review of, mostly, physical changes in Grandview;
  • Jak will give a brief overview of the GV Database’s growth and future;
  • Final decisions on Donato’s Plaque for the oldest house in Grandview;
  • Photographs of the Crystal Dairy and where was that fleet yard?

Come join us. The conversations are always interesting.
