Amanda and Jeff Leighton (and James & Merrick)

What is something you enjoy about the St. John’s/Scotia Heights/Luxton/North End/Point Douglas neighbourhood?

The River! We love canoeing, swimming, fishing (that’s new to us though) and basically anything riverside. (reading, eating, drinking, sitting, being) We also love living so close to the school and community centre.

Why are you a member of Bannerman Green?

The housing co-op plans to build in the empty lot on the east side of our house – so that’s motivation. Fortunately, we are very supportive and excited about diverse community housing that cares about the future.

If you plan/want to live at Bannerman Green, what are you most looking forward to?

Being a part of creating community, knowing each of us is a cog in the wheel.

What is your favourite band or musician?

Too hard to choose just one.

Have you started any new hobbies during COVID19?

Yes, minecraft.

What is your favourite season?

Would you rather host a large gathering, or attend a large gathering at someone else’s house?
