It's that time again where one year draws to a close and a new year is upon us.

I'd like to take this opportunity to recap on what happened this year in and around our Village:

- We bid farewell to renowned Authentic Thai Cuisine Restaurant Thai World and welcomed the new trendy fine wine and dine restaurant Sea Grill 2nd Ave by La Boheme.

-The Kenilworth Booms made headlines with residents having mixed feelings about whether the booms should be fixed and operating properly or stay open.

- Once again, the annual Harfield Village Carnival was a highlight event for 2019 which showcased everything from delicious eats and craft beer to home décor, art, clothing and live music.

- In defiance of the gloomy recession, Norgarb Properties sold a whopping 6 properties in 5 weeks.

-The new Deli Café popped up on 2nd Avenue, offering a juice bar, fresh veggies market days and wine tasting evenings.

- Amongst all the events to celebrate, we remember Uyinene Mrwetyana who tragically lost her life at the Clareinch Post Office. Many residents paid their respects by taking part in marches all around the neighbourhood.

- We waved good-bye to the cute and renowned Norgarb Properties Tuk-Tuks! It was fun, but it was time to go. They will surely be missed, but we look forward to seeing them being famous as they head into the movie industry. 

No doubt, Harfield Village is still a buzzing community of vibey businesses and restaurants and family-friendly streets.
