Another season upon us – it’s almost fall in Woodstock and Oxford County!

And with everything crazy going on in the world, we know people are still looking for things to do, especially things to do in the fall. We did some research and thought some outdoor oriented activities might be welcome. Check them out!

Drive Oxford: Oxford County is really beautiful, especially when the fall leaves are out. Sometimes, you don’t want to drive around totally aimlessly, because you might end up on a not-so-pretty-route (or possibly lost). Tour Oxford has put together three routes with this in mind. Check them out and enjoy taking in the blaze of the fall leaves: https://www.tourismoxford.ca/listing/detail/ArticleId/14440/3-Routes-to-Satisfy-Your-Fall-Colour-Craving.aspx

Raise Some Funds for Hospice: On September 19, 2020, you can get moving and do something good for your community. VON Sakura House Residential Hospice is doing their Hike for Hospice event, sponsored by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada. Typically, Hike for Hospice would have had hundreds of people attending in person together to raise funds, but this year, things had to be taken virtually. That’s ok – you can hike, walk, run, cycle around your own neighbourhood, the park, inside on your spin bike, whatever it takes. VON Sakura House has set a goal of $80,000 for fundraising, so let’s help them get there! Here is their event information and registration details: http://vonsakurahouse.com/hike-for-hospice/

Forest Bathe: Forest Bathing, or for ‘normal people’, hiking or walking through the forest, is a really nice pastime and something fun to do while the weather is good. Oxford County has so many trails that we think it might be giving Uxbridge, the trail capital, a run for its money. Pack a snack and water, and enjoy your forest bathe: https://www.oxfordcounty.ca/Explore-Oxford/Trails-parks/Oxford-County-Trails

Farmers’ Market: The Fairgrounds Mutual Building at 875 Nellis Street, Woodstock is hosting the Woodstock Farmers’ Market which always has fresh, local food. It’s open 7am-noon every Saturday, year-round, and let’s be honest – this definitely beats lining up outside the grocery store.

2020 is certainly an odd year, but the silver lining is that Woodstock and Oxford County still have family-friendly, socially distant activities to enjoy. Let’s take Fall 2020 by storm!

Very reliable storage. A good solution to park your car and keeping it protected from all weather conditions. Although a bit remote location.. but the price and the service was worth it.

I went in to find out some information on storage units for when I move in a couple weeks and was happily surprised by the customer service I received. I had looked at a few other storage facilities in Woodstock but their customer service was terrible compared to Jared's from Storage Solutions. He was professional and understanding of my needs and was ready to help anywhere he could. I will definitely be spreading the word to any of my friends looking for units!

Great rates for a clean, secure, well lit place. Really good staff and a company that cares. New facility and the competitors are pretty tired looking and charging the same rates (if not a bit more).

My husband and I recently relocated from the US and needed a place to store all of our belongings while we secured a new home. The folks at Storage Solutions advised us on the right size unit for our needs, at the right price. They were kind and helpful with all of our "first-timer" questions. We were very confident in the security of the place, and had absolutely no issues. I would highly recommend and use them again if needed.

Been storing office and personal items for years. Have had various size units. Prices are great and staff has always been helpful.
