Men's Shed at Beacon Heights Community League

Beacon Heights Community League is proud to host Edmonton’s first Men’s Shed; an international initiative with the goal of making male-focused activities available in communities.

Wednesday evenings between 7 and 9 pm men of all ages are encouraged to drop by the Beacon Heights/Jubilee Park rink building, located at 12037 43rd St.

Men are encouraged to drop in and participate in a variety of activities; woodworking, small engine repair, gardening, cooking, card games, or simply having a cup of coffee and sharing stories.

Activities and goals of the Shed may change over time, depending on the interests of the group. It is important to remember that each man is a teacher and a learner; many different levels of skills and knowledge are shared collectively.

 

Abundant Community

How would you like to know your neighbours better and create a stronger sense of community?

Utilizing the strengths and input of local citizens, the Neighbourhood Services Section of The City of Edmonton has co-developed Abundant Community Edmonton. Abundant Community Edmonton is a grassroots initiative fostering neighbour to neighbour relationships. The goal is to cultivate a culture of care and connection, increased sense of belonging and inclusion, and ultimately to create a more healthy and livable community - one block at a time

The Beverly Heights Community League Board has agreed to provide support towards implementing this program. The first step will be to engage community citizens to identify your ideas around how to build a stronger more inclusive community. For more information please refer to Abundant Community Edmonton on the City of Edmonton website.

To become involved in the community Abundant Community initiative or to have your voice heard, please email: volunteer.bhcl@gmail.com

As part of building a stronger community, various citizens in the Beverly and Rundle Heights neighbourhood will again be hosting summer Block Parties. These might be a simple get together with a few neighbours in a yard or a BBQ in an open garage. Some others will obtain the City of Edmonton Block Party Permit and host a party on a roadway, alley or park space.

Please keep an eye on our community website, Facebook page, and your mailbox for planned events in your area. It’s a great way to get to know each other in an informal setting!

If you are interested in organizing a party, please refer to the Planning Your Block Party Event on the City of Edmonton website.

Neighbourhood Watch

It’s great to see so many neighbors watching out for each other by posting “heads up” notices on the Beverly Heights Community League Facebook Public Group. By working together we can keep Beverly Heights safe!

  • Many concerns can be reported to the City of Edmonton by dialing 311 or on the “Edmonton 311” app.
  • The non-emergency police line is 780-423-4567 for reporting suspicious activity.
  • Call 911 for crimes in progress or other emergency situations.
  • Visit the Edmonton Neighborhood Watch website and the Edmonton Police Service website for crime prevention news and information.

Another way to keep our community safe is to check that your street sidewalk does not have trees and shrubs that might be in the way of walkers, block vehicle views or street signs. If you have to duck or weave around branches they need a trim! For city trees, call 311.
