Langley, BC - Langley residents are invited to lace up their shoes, grab their family and friends, and get ready to walk and roll, as the Langley Walk returns on Sunday, May 1. For more than half a century, the Township of Langley and the City of Langley have been teaming up to present the Langley Walk, a free day of fun and fresh air that promotes exercise and good health. The event encourages residents to come out and explore their neighbourhoods and enjoy activities and entertainment.
Just before midnight on December 29, a 4.7 magnitude earthquake gave residents in Langley and throughout the Lower Mainland a jarring reminder that we live in an earthquake zone. While most people know our area is susceptible to quakes, how many are actually prepared for a major event and have taken steps to ensure they can manage in the days following such a disaster?
The City of Langley invited students from Langley City schools to explore and learn about what the local government does for the community it serves. On Wednesday, April 20 from 9:30am to 1:00pm, grade 4/5 students visited a Langley City Hall, the Timms Community Centre and FVRL Langley City Library. Students toured the various ‘stations’ that showcased and demonstrated some of the different services provided by local government. Stations included a visit with the Mayor, the Recreation department, and the Langley City Fire-Rescue Service, the Langley RCMP, the Engineering Operations and Parks department’s right outside of City Hall.
Langley City Fire Rescue Service would like to remind residents that the City of Langley does not permit open air burning. This includes any open flame device, fire pits, open air fires or any similar appliances except for grills or barbecues used for the purpose of cooking food that utilize natural gas, propane or briquettes as a fuel source, as noted in Langley City Fire Protection and Safety Bylaw No. 2784.
This past weekend, the City of Langley hosted over 1000 people at the Timms Community Centre Open House. The event featured free classes and activities, including Tai Chi, Zumba, volleyball and bridge, making full use of the Timms Centre’s state-of-the-art amenities.
The City of Langley is inviting Langley residents and visitors to experience the Timms Community Centre’s facilities first-hand at its Open House on April 9 between 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
