#WelliWander with Councillor Jeff Leiper

We went along on a #WelliWander with Kitchissippi Ward Councillor Jeff Leiper and visited some of his favourite spots in Hintonburg and Wellington Village:

Record Centre: Natalie and I know we’re going to run into our favourite neighbours flipping through the well-curated bins of new and used vinyl. Chatting with Jeff, John and the staff about music and our community is always a highlight of our visit.

Nu GroceryValerie, Sia and the team are helping us reduce plastic and garbage one product at a time with no-waste shopping and some of the friendliest staff in Kitchissippi.

Fil’s DinerKid-friendly, generous portions and fast service have brought us back to Fil’s weekend after weekend. Just writing this has me hungry for a Fil’s dog, fries and a chocolate shake.

Home HardwareMike and team sell all the household tools and supplies we need stuffed into every nook and cranny of this neighbourhood institution, and it’s just around the corner.

MetroWhen Natalie and I moved into the Julian apartments 25-odd years ago, we depended without a car on the Metro for a walkable store to get all the staples we need. It’s still a walkable store where we can get all the staples we need.

Join us on a #WelliWander through Hintonburg and Wellington Village with other local personalities you know and love.
