It’s all about Community at The Bayfield Mews. We are a 55+ Community providing independent living for our residents. All four families are now settled in their news home sin Block #13. Building is progressing well on Block 14 despite some of the inclement weather we have experienced. There is only ONE lot left in Block #15 in our Final Phase!!
Each year Remarkable Citizens Awards are handed out by Huron-Bruce MPP, Lisa Thompson, to respected and dedicated community leaders, volunteers and residents who have made a positive impact within the riding of Huron-Bruce. To date, 138 remarkable citizens have been recognized. Among this distinguished list for 2020, is John Elmslie who will be receiving his award at ceremonies on January 8, 2020. For almost 20 years, John has been the driving force behind the Bayfield Mews. He has invested countless hours to this project strictly on a voluntary basis knowing that the Bayfield Mews would fill a void for those who were looking for a safe, comfortable and affordable community to live in. As Board Chair since the concept was first presented, John has been involved in all purchasing, design, contracting, financing and sales decisions. Today, the Bayfield Mews features 47 two-bedroom homes and by next year it will be complete with 55 homes. The Bayfield Mews is John Elmslie’s community legacy and he deserves to be honoured for working so hard to make his village a better place.
