Update - August 3, 2021

The current plan is to not re-open the HSSC to "in-person" programming until Tuesday, September 7th (unless the provincial guidelines change). BGC London will be operating summer day camps for children. The HSSC will continue to offer our WOW (Without Walls) programs until we are able to safely return to the Club.

We will continue to provide updates as they become available. The HSSC follows all provincial and local COVID-19 guidelines and protocols, and these are subject to change at any time.

Upon Re-Opening - Quick Facts:

  • We all must all continue to follow the rules and public health measures under the provincial guidelines.
  • The HSSC will require all members to register for any and all programs they attend at the HSSC. We will not be offering any “Drop in Program” until it is safe to do so.
  • Registration will open on Monday, August 23 for the weeks of September 7th and September 13th. You MUST have an active / current membership to register for any program at the HSSC.
  • The HSSC staff will have all reopening details available the week of August 16th. We are very excited to see everyone again and we hope you are as well, please do not call the club asking for information ahead of August 16th as it will not be available. If staff are able to have the reopening information available sooner we will let you know via our Facebook page and mass email.
  • The HSSC staff will be hosting “Reopening Information Session” the week of August 30th via Facebook live, Zoom and a mass email. Theses information sessions will be offered every day starting Monday, August 30th to Friday, September 3rd at 12:00 p.m. (noon) through Facebook live and through Zoom on Tuesday, August 31st and Thursday, September 2nd at 1:00 p.m.

Seniors' Transit

At this time, our Transit program is not accepting any new members.

Priority will be given to existing members.

If you are not coming back to the HSSC while we are operating under our COVID-19 schedule, you will not lose your regular spot on the HSSC transit.

If you have any questions please call HSSC Transit at 519-434-9119.*

*Please do not call our main number (519-434-9114) to reach the Transit Department. We're unable to transfer calls to them as their office is off-site.

Frozen Entrées Available for Purchase!

*NEW* Four specially made, frozen, curbside meals are available for purchase as part of our monthly specials. Click here for details on our Events page!

Our chef-made line of Frozen Entrées to Go offer the comfort of a home cooked meal without any of the effort.

Affordably priced, our menu selections are made with fresh, quality ingredients in our professionally-staffed kitchen. Some of our delicious creations are even vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free.

Food safety continues to be our top priority.

Our generous, single-serve portions are designed to go right from your freezer to your oven, or can be popped out of the oven-safe container and microwaved.

Cooking times vary, but all our dishes are fully cooked, and just require reheating to an internal temperature of 74°C, (165°F) as with all prepared foods.

We offer same day, curbside pick-up, safe and contactless. While we prefer that you order and pay online, if you are unable, you can phone your orders in to 519 434 9115 x 234, and pay by credit card over the phone. Exact cash will also be accepted at pick up. We deliver orders of 6 or more entrees, and can accept cheques upon delivery.

So take the night off, and let us cook for you tonight! Contact Marieke by email or phone with questions anytime.
