Long-Time Resident: Paul Reid Honouring Our Pioneers:

PAUL REID, one of the first residents in Farrer Cove, relates the early history of the area. His father purchased property in Farrer Cove in the 1930s, and Paul used to row a boat from Burnaby to Farrer Cove in the summers. Paul's daughter, Paula, is married to Councillor Larry Carlsen, and also lives in Farrer Cove with their two children.
Long-Time Resident: Loyd Bussey Honouring Our Pioneers:

LOYD BUSSEY helped establish the Woodhaven - Bedwell Bay Property Owners Association in 1947. Loyd tells how he bought Lot 10, Block 1 (4152 Marine Avenue) for $100 from the provincial government in 1947. On September 20, 1954, Loyd took out the first official building permit (#3851) to built a 902 square foot summer cottage in the regulated area of Woodhaven, which later became part of the Village of Belcarra, and the total building permit cost $12.00. In 1972 Loyd sold the property to Rosemary & Mike Cotton for $32,000 who replaced the original Bussey cottage with a new house between 1978 and 1982.
