Phase 3 of Abbey Road townhomes will be available tomorrow

Hello! For all those who has expressed interest in Abbey Road, I wanted you to be the first to know that we are starting sales on the 3rd phase of Abbey Road tomorrow, Saturday April 14, at noon.

As you know, we were completely overwhelmed with the response received at our Grand Opening last month, and in three short weeks, have sold out of the majority of homes that were offered in our first two phases. Given the turn out we received during our last release, we anticipate a very busy weekend, and encourage you to come visit us early if you are still interested in purchasing a home at Abbey Road! Our Presentation Centre is at 2469 – 164th Street, South Surrey.

We also encourage you to visit our website at to view our extensive features list and floor plans.

Set in the heart of Grandview Heights in South Surrey, Abbey Road will introduce a new standard of contemporary elegance to what is already one of the most vibrant places to call home. With shopping, dining, entertainment and all the conveniences of urban living surrounding you, Abbey Road’s 2, 3 and 4 bedroom Georgian Townhomes offer a traditional way to live in this dynamic neighborhood.

I look forward to seeing you this weekend but, in the meantime, if you would like to discuss Abbey Road further please don’t hesitate to call me at 604-836-2474 or via email at

A theatre treat is coming to White Rock!

The Mikado is coming to White Rocks Coast Capital Playhouse

The Mikado is coming to White Rock's Coast Capital Playhouse

Tickets are available now for the Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s 30th anniversary production, The Mikado, running May 9-19 at a new venue, White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd.

One of B.C.’s most recognized tenors, Mark Donnelly – well-known as ‘Mr O Canada’ for his anthem singing at Canucks games – trades his microphone for a kimono as he plays the title role of the imperious Mikado of Japan to his own son Sean’s performance as “wandering minstrel” Nanki-Poo.

A strong cast of popular G & S players includes James Walker as Ko-Ko, the Mikado’s Lord High Executioner; Adam Olgui as the pompous Pooh-Bah; Rebekkah MacEwan as Yum-Yum, Tamara Wilhelm as Pitti-Sing, Samantha Anddrews as Peep-Bo and mezzo Jacquollyne Keath as Nanki-Poo’s “slightly bloodthirsty” would-be fiance, Katisha.

Don’t let the Japanese costumes fool you – W.S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan’s witty 1885 operetta, much like Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, is, at heart, a thinly-disguised satire of Victorian England’s manners and mores.

Evening performances are Wednesday to Sunday at 8 p.m. with a 2:30 matinee May 13.

To reserve tickets, call 604-536-7535, or visit

White Rock's pooch parade

The second annual Pooch Parade on the Peninsula is set to hit White Rock beach later this month.

The event, which received special permission from the city to be held on the normally dog-free beach, will take place April 22nd. Proceeds from the event benefit the Rotary Club of White Rock and the Semiahmoo Animal League Inc. (SALI)

Among the activities planned for the event, in addition to the parade itself, are a photo contest and a dancing dog demonstration. In addition, police dogs will also be on-site.

About 300 dogs and their owners are expected to attend, according to event organizers Karen and Winston Conyers.

Bring your canine pal on a fixed leash to the Rotary registration tent beside the parking lot on West Beach White Rock to receive your complimentary doggie bag between 10.00am and 12.30pm. Browse the vendor tables and enjoy a leisurely walk around the GRASSY area between the train tracks and the beach!

Those wishing to participate can register online at White Rock Pooch Parade. Suggested donation is $20 per dog.
