A great place to chat

Exceptional Customer Service When the customer is happy everybody wins! High quality customer service will create repeat customers and increase your sales. Improve your customer service skills by attending our “WorldHost” workshop. Learn how to communicate effectively, why and how to handle customer complaints and what effect your service has on other businesses and the community. Register for the course on Sept 17, 2013 from 9.00am - 4.00pm by calling 250-992-2322.

Neighbours, friends and acquaintances took the opportunity to catch up during the opening of the West Village Community Garden on Thursday. It is the hope this will become a regular occurrence as gardeners meet to carry on the business of growing. For more photos of the event see PAGE A11.
