Much like spring crocuses, condos in the Beach are popping up at an alarming rate. Many Beachers are not impressed. Imagine in the future if book reading dwindled in popularity – would our beloved library be converted into a residence?

Such is the case with worshippers in our community. The first photograph of the former Bellefair United Church was taken in 2009. The change is astounding! House prices can be exorbitant and condos provide a financial alternative, but how much of our history are we willing to sacrifice?

There is absolutely nothing “alarming” about the condos (otherwise referred to as people’s homes) being built in the Beach or the rate at which they are being built!
