Buckhorn sports pad decision deferred to June

Trent Lakes township council voted Tuesday to defer a decision until late June regarding discussion of the Buckhorn sports pad. Coun. Peter Franzen presented a motion at council’s regular meeting to delay any further discussions or resolutions on the proposed sports pad until after the Oct. 24 municipal election. But since council, at its last meeting, had asked the Buckhorn Community Centre to supply it with information regarding possible sale of its land to council, it was decided to wait until that information has been received.

Lakefield Literary Festival cancelled again

LAKEFIELD — The Lakefield Literary Festival has been cancelled for the third year in a year. “Due to the ongoing pandemic and our desire to exercise an abundance of caution, the Lakefield Literary Festival will extend its hiatus until 2023,” organizers have announced. The next festival is scheduled to take place July 14 and 15, 2023 with a return to its original core elements. That means two authors will be presenting on the Friday evening of the 2023 event. The children’s tent will offer its program on the Saturday morning at Cenotaph Park, two authors will present on Saturday afternoon and a headlining author on Saturday night. The adult author events will be held at the Lakefield United Church on Regent Street, with author signings and small reception. It is hoped this will more directly involve the village of Lakefield and offer more available seating capacity. The festival celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2019. More updates on the 2023 festival will be posted at lakefieldliteraryfestival.com.
