Project Warmth

Community Food Share and the House of Lazarus, once again, are teaming up with Winchester BMR to make homes a little warmer this winter.

Distribution of heating aids is made possible through partnerships with community agencies, including local food banks, Eastern Champlain Health Link, Canadian Mental Health Association and Community Living Dundas County.

A $20 donation will provide window insulation kits for three families, while a $63 donation will supply a weeks worth of Eco-Energy Logs and a $252 donation will supply a month’s worth of Eco-Energy Logs to a family in need this winter.

To donate, please contact: House of Lazarus 613-989-3830, Community Food Share 613-898-0781 or Winchester BMR 613-774-2700.

Hydrant Flushing

Please be advised that hydrant flushing will take place October 9th – 26th, 2018 in both the Villages of Chesterville and Winchester.

Residents may notice a discolouration of the water at their homes during this period and for a short time thereafter.  If you notice a discolouration of your tap water, please run the water until it is clear. This discolouration is not hazardous to your health.  It is typical of a normal operating water distribution system.

Please call the Ontario Clean Water Agency at 613-448-3098 if you have any questions or comments.

Thank you for your patience.
