FITNESS ROOM

WOODVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA – The Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors wishes to advise the residents of Woodville and Kings County who are members of our Fitness Room that despite the recent government announcement allowing fitness facilities to begin phasing their re-openings, the Fitness Room at the Woodville Community Centre will not be re-opening at the present time. This difficult decision was made due to the unique nature of our small, volunteer-managed fitness facility, which makes it nearly impossible to comply with the proposed recommendations and requirements for screening patrons, limiting occupancy, ensuring social/physical distancing, and carrying out cleaning and sanitizing tasks with significantly increased frequency. In the event that a facility is found to not be in compliance with these requirements, it may be forced by the government to close its doors, which is a risk we do not wish to take. We recognize that our current capacity does not allow us to comply with all of the public health requirements, so we feel that remaining closed for the time being is the most responsible course of action and is in the best interest of our patrons’ health and that of our communities. The Board of Directors will re-evaluate this decision later in the summer, with the hope of beginning to phase our re-opening in the fall. We thank all our members for your patience and understanding, and hope you have a wonderful summer enjoying the beautiful outdoors!

RE: RED CROSS SWIMMING LESSONS and DAY CAMP

WOODVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA – The Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors wishes to advise the residents of Woodville and Kings County that the Red Cross Swimming Lesson Program and Day Camp scheduled for this summer are cancelled. This difficult decision was made due to the continuing concerns around the potential spread of COVID-19 in our communities and a desire to support the Nova Scotia Public Health directive of promoting physical distancing.

The Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors thanks those who have supported these programs in the past and look forward to welcoming you all to our community in 2021.

About the Woodville Red Cross Swimming Lessons and Day Camp
The Woodville Community Centre has been offering the Red Cross Swimming Lesson program to the residents of Woodville and Kings County for over 35 years. In the early years, the program was offered at pools in the community rotating on a weekly basis. In 1994, the swimming lessons were moved to the VanHattems’ pool on a permanent basis. Each year approximately 150 children learn to swim in Woodville.

Our Day Camp runs each summer for a week at the end of swimming lessons and employs many young people from the Community.

About Woodville
“Woodville occupies its place in the fertile Annapolis Valley, nestling into the North Mountain and providing a home for about 200 people. A landscape of orchards, pastures, cultivated fields and well-kept homes may be what one first notices, but Woodville is also a vibrant active community of citizens who have discovered how to support each other, have fun, who know how to work together.” – Jim Morton, Former MLA, Kings North in support of Woodville’s Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award nomination.

RE: 49th WOODVILLE CHICKEN BARBEQUE

WOODVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA – With disappointment, the Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors wishes to advise supporters that the Woodville Chicken Barbeque will be postponed until 2021. This difficult decision was made due to rising concerns around the potential spread of COVID-19 in our communities and a desire to support the Province of Nova Scotia in promoting social distancing.

The Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors thanks the 150+ dedicated volunteers who ensure the success of the event every year and thousands of people who support the event. The Board looks forward to welcoming you all to our community in 2021.

About the Barbeque
The Annual Woodville Chicken Barbeque is held on Apple Blossom Sunday each year hosted at Boates Orchards. The 3600 Half Chickens are barbequed over an open pit with our special BBQ Sauce and then served with Potato Salad, Coleslaw, Pickles, Roll, Honey and a glass of Boates Apple Cider. Picnic tables are spread throughout the orchard and if the timing is right, the Apple Blossoms are beautiful.

The Barbeque is truly a community event that takes a community effort. It is the major fundraising event of the year. Proceeds support all community activities throughout the year and keeps the Community Centre active.
