Public Notice: Cancellation of Events

November 25, 2020

Event cancellations



Please take note that the following Village public events have been cancelled:

  • Christmas Tree Lighting - Saturday, November 28, 2020
  • New Year’s Day Levee – Friday, January 1, 2021

While these holiday events are favorite traditions looked forward to by residents, participants, and the Village Commission, after careful consideration of the public health circumstances within the Province, and the number of youth, families, and seniors that attend the events, the difficult decision has been made to cancel the events for this holiday season in order to best protect public health.

If not careful, COVID-19 could spread quickly to and through our neighbourhood if we are not careful. To help prevent COVID-19 from getting to Bible Hill, please avoid going to the Halifax area for non-essential reasons like shopping. Support local businesses by shopping in the Truro area

Let’s work together to keep our community safe by doing all we can to avoid COVID-19. Wear your mask, stay home if you feel sick, wash or sanitize your hands often, and avoid crowded spaces where physical distancing of six feet is not being adhered to.

It is with regret that residents cannot join together in celebration on these dates, however we are hopeful that we are able to enjoy a regular holiday season next year. For the 2020 holiday season, let us work together to protect our community from COVID-19.
