We’ve finally moved to our NEW space in ROOM #147 at the Old Elementary School in the Village of Metchosin! It took a volunteer crew of a dozen or so, MSA Board members and helpers, just over an hour, to move into our newly renovated space, located just three-steps-up from our former store-front. The new Seniors’ Resource Centre (SRC) entrance is located in the right corner/ramp entrance, with push-button handicap access.
SRC’s new space also includes fully equipped handicap washrooms, which will best serve our tenants, visitors, seniors and their families, and anyone with mobility restrictions. We are now fully wheelchair accessible. Parallel parking for SRC is in the centre courtyard now, facing the painted mural.
Next steps to updating the existing space, is to construct a common kitchen and meeting area for Art Centre tenants, expand the hallway gallery, and create some extra storage space.
Prepping and painting the hall and bathrooms is well-underway, under supervision of MACCA. The outdoor main entrance will soon see new stairs and entranceway to the upper level for Metchosin Soap Works and studios and public works crews have been improving many aspects of the exterior building.
Please call 250-478-5150 to add your name to any of our volunteer work crews! Come and be part of the transformation team at the Old Elementary School in Metchosin.
