WestShore magazine

Chamber magazine highlights West Shore

Don’t miss your free copy of WestShore: The Art of Living in the April 13 edition of the Goldstream News Gazette.

Published by Black Press for the WestShore Chamber of Commerce, the magazine features local articles about life and culture on the West Shore.

“It’s just a sample of all the great things happening in the West Shore,” said editor Amy Dove. “With profiles of notable residents, festival highlights and a delicious picnic recipe, there is something for everyone to take away from its pages.”

The spring/summer issue includes a new calendar of key events for May to October. Whether your looking for an Easter egg hunt to attend with the kids or wondering where to catch the Canada Day celebrations, the calendar will help you keep informed.

With dispatches from Langford, Colwood, Highlands, View Royal, Metchosin and — for the first time this issue — Sooke, you can find out what’s happening in your neighbourhood and throughout the region. Stories on the View Royal archives and hiking trails in Highlands are included in these sections.

The magazine also has information about the Solar Colwood project, which will help retrofit 1,000 homes with solar water heating in the next three years, and highlights how our sports fields and facilities are helping grow great local athletes.

Readers will also find out what the future holds for supporting the arts, with the Coast Collective and the proposed Emily Carr arts centre.

See the faces behind events such as the Classic Caddys car show. Or learn about some of the West Shore’s finest businesses and people, including ice maker Art Sutherland, owner of Accent Refrigeration.

There’s lots of exciting things happening in our growing communities. This full colour magazine will make you proud of this place we call home.

The magazine WestShore: The Art of Living is published twice per year, in March and September. For more information see www.westshore.bc.ca.
