BLACKSTOCK by Tammy Phillips

Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dennis Hext, a long-time member of the Blackstock community, who passed peacefully on Wednesday, April 7th.

Sadly, the 2021 Blackstock Fair is cancelled due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. If any residents have photos of past fairs they would like to share on social media, they can be sent to Plans are in the works for some fun COVID-friendly activities this summer. More details to follow.

Running through until the end of May is The Blackstock Co-op Nursery School’s (BCNS) fundraiser for Spring 2021. The BCNS Plantables School Fundraising Program is about as pandemic safe a fundraiser can get with delivery of herbs, fruit and vegetable plants directly to your mailbox or front door. Visit the Plantables website directly at Select your choice of garden-ready herbs, fruit and vegetables.

Be sure to enter the code: BCNS2021 at checkout. Then choose your delivery week, and your plants are delivered to your front door! BCNS received 10% from every order.

The “Second Annual Spring Into Happiness” is in full swing with a “Flower Foraging” theme. I’ve seen many more decorated windows around town.

Join in the fun by putting up a single flower, covering your window in a full bouquet, or get out for a stroll around the neighbourhood to enjoy the creativity.

News and items for consideration can be emailed to by noon on the Monday prior to publication date.
