I hope that you had a fun and safe Halloween, and I can’t believe that it is already November! The fall colours and the moon have been unbelievably beautiful, but the temperature is dropping.
In this weekly update I have included details on our new Regional council and Remembrance Day in Bedford-Wentworth. As well I am including highlights of announcements from The Light Up Bedford Parade Committee, HRM and HRP this past week.
New Regional Council
There was a Swearing-In Ceremony held this past Thursday for the new Regional Council. The training sessions for the new Councillors are underway, the Committee meetings are re-starting next week, and the first meeting of the new Regional Council will be held on November 10th.
Remembrance Day in Bedford-Wentworth
The Bedford Legion has decided that a smaller and shorter service will be held in-person at the Bedford Cenotaph in Fish Hatchery Park on November 11th. Attendees will be asked to wear a mask and social distancing will be required.
Light Up Bedford Parade 2020
“Thank you for your patience while the LUBP society worked on a creative solution to kick off the holiday season in Bedford this year.
The bad news: unfortunately, due to covid restrictions, we will not be able to host our normal parade.
The good news: a small convoy of vehicles, including our title sponsor Dexter Municipal, our media sponsor Q104, and of course, Santa, will do an evening tour of neighbourhoods on 22 Nov 2020.
So we need all of you in Bedford to light the way for Santa by having your holiday lights up in time for his visit!
To avoid the gathering of large crowds, we won’t be able to advertise the route but we are working to stream parts of it! Stay tuned for more details!”
Halifax Regional Police
Police share tips to reduce vehicle break-ins
“Halifax Regional Police is continuing to receive reports of thefts from vehicles across the Halifax region. We are continuing to conduct neighbourhood patrols and are sharing information and tips for citizens:
Always lock your vehicle, even when parked in your driveway.
Never leave valuables in your vehicle, especially in plain view.
Leave outside lights or motion sensors on or park in well-lit areas. With the clock turning back on Sunday, it will be getting dark earlier and staying dark longer.
Call police immediately at 902-490-5020 if you see suspicious activity in or around parked vehicles (e.g. someone walking by cars and trying the door handles.)
File a report with police if you have had property stolen from or damage to your vehicle. You’ll need a police file number for insurance purposes and the information will help us track incidents and deploy our resources.”
