A hall becomes more welcoming for seniors

The Wynndel Community Centre is undergoing enhancements to make it sustainable, safer, more accessible and more energy-efficient.

Built in 1951, the Wynndel Community Centre, frequently used by seniors, needed several upgrades to make it sustainable, safer, more accessible and more energy efficient. The building is undergoing enhancements like new LED lighting, occupancy sensors and solar panels, plus a new roof over the ramp that leads into the hall, which is often covered in ice or snow. The Trust supports projects like these that benefit seniors and Indigenous elders and the places in which they gather.

“The energy efficiency opportunities will pay themselves off over time in saved electricity and natural gas costs,” said Margaret Durnin, Board member with the organization. “And now that they won’t have to face shoveling off the ramp in winter, we expect that even more seniors will use the hall for different activities.”
