Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

Wesburn Healthy Living Mural

Wesburn Healthy Living Wesburn Healthy Living Wesburn Healthy Living Wesburn Healthy Living Wesburn Healthy Living

To honour the previous 35 year old mural which was on the outside surface of Wesburn Community Centre, a new mural was created bringing people together in conversation which created strong relationships where participants were able to meet new neighbours and to make the space a welcoming place for all. 

From inception to completion the number of participants grew from 40 members developing the project in open workshops, to 170 involved in painting, for a total of 210 community members. In describing the community and what is important, members highlighted the values of togetherness, respect, diversity, health and well-being, caring for the environment, personal growth and believing in the power of people to create change. There was an overwhelming response from the Wesburn community to explore and rediscover the importance of healthy living. Topics such as culture, play, sport and gardening were recurring themes, while community members created stories of what healthy living meant to them. There is also a consistent theme of apple trees to honour the apple tree orchards that used to be in the area years ago.
