The West End Neighborhood Renewal
On March 27, The West End Neighbourhood Renewal hosted the Biz West Networking Night through Life After Fifty at Jimmy Gs Bar and Grill from 6:30 p.m to 9:30 p.m.
The free event invited attendees to have the opportunity to network with different businesses and business professionals. In this “shop local, support local” environment, the networking event focused on exploring opportunities and discussing neighbourhoods in West Windsor.
“The majority of our work is resident lead, this is important because at the end of the day we want to excel in supporting the priorities, vision and needs of the residents,” says Leo Gill, Coordinator of Resident Engagement and Resource Development at Our West End Neighbourhood Renewal. “We are also using new window vinyls #BuyWestYQG and the idea was to have many promotional items under one banner so this is a social media tactics to let Windsor knew what’s going on in the West end.”
Businesses from Olde Sandwich Towne, the BIA, the Society Shop and many others joined the networking event to share their love for the West end.
“We want to create that relationship between the residents and with the businesses as the community continues to grow from each other,” says Tamara Murray, community coordinator at Our West End. “We think Windsor has some amazing hidden gems. Even to take half a day and walk down Wyandotte and witness what the West end has to offer to open the eyes to so many.”
