Neighbourhood House to open as a cooling centre

Benchmark set at 30C

It’s going to be hot this week and members of the Cowichan Neighbourhood House Association executive want the public to know the site on Willow Street will be made available as a cooling centre.

“We will be planning to be open for any heat waves through the rest of the summer (above 30C) and will be planning a warming centre come winter time,” noted Emily Holmes, CNHA vice president.

“We’ll have a sign out front,” added CNHA president Kathy Asp.

During those extreme climate events, the centre will be open from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. for anyone who’d like to come in and cool off.
