Mondays & Fridays: Nordic Walking with Nina LePage
Wednesdays: Community Mindfulness Meditation and Sanbo Zen
Thursdays: Monkey Rock Music with Kieran Howes

Changes at the Office


Farewell Charlie

Nectar will sadly miss Charlie Johnson, who has been our General Manager since August 2016, and who had previously managed the Nectar After School Program. For the past year she has provided exceptional management in this position. Charlie leaves us on June 30th and we sincerely wish her well.

Hello Paul

We welcome Paul Tonkin who will take over the Nectar office management in a reduced part-time capacity during our time of transition. He will be taking over, so feel free to get in touch and say hello!

New Office Hours

As of July 4th, Nectar's office hours will be reduced to the following times:
Tuesdays, 9am - 12pm
Thursdays, 2pm - 5pm

Laughing Yoga

Do you love to have fun while you keep fit? Laughing Yoga is for you! We are organising a demonstration class this summer and would love for you to join us.

Please contact to let us know when would work for you.

A Taste of Spring

A big thank you to all of the organisers of this year's taste of Spring! The evening was a resounding success, giving neighbours an opportunity to get to know each other over a delicious meal. We can't wait for the next one!
The Lumiere Festival is back! Join us on August 26th for a magical evening of light on the Rockcliffe Park Village Green. This year's festival is hosted in partnership with the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre, who are working hard to make sure that this year's festival is the best ever!

Check out our website to find out more, and to see how you can get involved. At the moment we're looking for volunteers and clean jars for lantern workshops!

The Future of Nectar

The Future of Nectar Task Force is up and running and will make recommendations to the board by early Fall.

The Task Force is open to any interested persons in the community, so please contact Isobel at if you wish to attend.

New Edinburgh House

As many of you may know, New Edinburgh House is going up for sale. The Nectar board is working tirelessly to ensure a transaction that is in the best interests of the community.
