Along the north-south stretch of the Cabot Trail, the North Shore Fire Hall is our official “comfort station”, the place to make your way to if the power goes out for a long time. Events can be licensed for alcohol service. The building is fully accessible, and there is a fully accessible washroom. It is equipped with a flat-panel TV and Internet access. The Fire Department hosts fundraising suppers throughout the year; the most popular is the lobster supper, which takes place every year in the first week or so of the New Year. They also have a welcome newcomers supper, usually around November 1 each year. This Hall is also home to weekly cribbage meets in the winter.

Community Health Centre

Attached to the Fire Hall is our community Health Centre, a small space that can be rented separately. The Health Centre offers seating and table space for 8 or so, and is ideal for cosy meetings. Internet access and a flip chart stand are available. There is a separate entrance with a few steps; the space can also be entered from inside the Fire Hall, which offers an accessible entrance. It shares an accessible washroom with the Fire Hall. There is a fair collection of books of every description available for borrowing (a sort of local “library”). When you’re not using it, the Health Centre hosts several Wellness Clinics for men and women throughout the year (a doctor from nearby Baddeck attends for the day), as well as foot clinics. Of course, the Health Centre also drives quite a few very important community activities as well, but they don’t rely on this space. You will want to learn about off-season (that is, not summer) activities like Saturday community hikes, Wednesday “Seniors” Lunches, and an assortment of physical exercise practices like weekly T’ai Chi or yoga.
