Bobby said: “I am honoured to receive this award in the new place I call home, Liverpool!  And to receive it at the performance of Godspell, with these talented kids, it’s amazing”

A commemorative medal had been created to mark the celebration of both the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne in 1952, as well as the 40th anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Programme in Nova Scotia.

GODSPELL - the musical in Liverpool

Liverpool NS
Friday, August 16th and
Saturday, August 17th
8:00 pm
Tickets $15


The Nicholoadians Theatrical Society (TNTS), a not-for-profit theatre group, is presenting Godspell, a high-energy rock musical based on the Gospel of Matthew, and is full of songs, laughter, and stories. With well-known songs like "Day By Day", and toe-tappers like "All For the Best", Godspell appeals to people of all ages and interests.

Liverpool - Perfect for Retirees & Semi-retirees

Liverpool's laid back lifestyle is attracting more and more residents 'from away' with new cultures and languages blending with those of the long term residents that can be traced back many generations. It is a community unmarked by factories offering organic farms and traditions of yesteryear that blends with the new. It is a part of Nova Scotia where countless home based businesses support the community.

Liverpool lies in the heart of a community where there are lakes abound - where early morning fog drifts over the warm water, where the Atlantic laps the shore in a loving caress, where the setting sun casts long shadows on beaches where the only footprints are one's own, where it is easy to get drawn into the peace and tranquility and where the cares of the world are far, far away.

Come for a visit, but be prepared to stay for a

Dear Canada - We Love Liverpool, Nova Scotia

Dear Canada
Liverpool is a little town on the south shore of Nova Scotia. It is the perfect place for retirees and semi retirees who are looking for a quiet, laid back old fashioned feel, where it is safe to walk out after dark, where your beach for the day is a 5 minutes drive and the streets are tree lined with old growth that cast dappled patterns on old Victorian homes . The climate - is mild, mild, mild with four season.
Happy Canada Day.
So when are you coming?
Sincerely yours,

Privateer Days - Liverpool

DATE: June 21st to June 23rd 2013
LOCATION: Liverpool Nova Scotia

An event that pays tribute to our Privateering past while never losing its sense of fun.
Privateers were privately owned ships that were authorized by government to raid ships from other countries—a form of legalized piracy on the high seas. The men who served aboard these ships were referred to as "privateers."
Liverpool quickly emerged as one of British North America's leading privateering ports, eventually deploying more privateer vessels than even the much larger city of Halifax. Ships like the Lucy, the Rover, and the Liverpool Packet gained international renown for their workmanship and speed, and the prowess of their crews inspired respect and fear.

Thomas Fall was born in Liverpool on July 24,1916. He was the oldest of 8 children born to Tom Sr and Reta (Harper) Falls.  Like  for many young men in Liverpool, at that time, boxing became a passion for him.

Their children include sons Thomas, Randolph and Derrick. One day in September 1948, Tom was arrested by the Montreal Police and beaten to death.  It should be noted that, at the same time, Tommy's father Tom Sr was in Liverpool battling cancer and he died in November of the same year. Tommy was buried in Pte. Claire, Quebec a few days after his death. He is buried in the Field of Remembrance, a military cemetery operated by the Last Post Fund.

Tiger Warrington - Liverpool's Boxer

Terrance (Tiger) Warrington, born in Liverpool NS, 12th April 1914, boxer, died 01 February 1978.

June5th 1933 – Halifax Arena – Halifax Nova Scotia – Light Heavyweight Terrance (Tiger) Warrington, of Liverpool Nova Scotia, meets former maritime and Canadian Light Heavyweight champion Roy Mitchell in what was to become one of the most controversial fights in Nova Scotia history. 
In the first round Mitchell decks Warrington for a two count and from there on the boxers sparred. Action returned in the 9th round when Warrington rocked Mitchell with three rights to the jaw. By the 10th round they were again sparring. Two judges determined that Warrington had won the fight but due to the lack of activity the fight was declared a 'no contest’.

Not long after the bout, Mitchell retired to become an evangelist. He suddenly died in 1951 at the age of 48. Warrington continued his career and went on to greater heights.
Now that Warrington and Mitchell are both dead the true story behind their controversial fight may never be known.
Live, love, Liverpool

Henry Hensey

Henry Hensey (1900-1970)
will long be remembered by the people of Liverpool. Henry Hensey was loved by all, touched many people's hearts and in return for his kindness the people named a street after him. 
Henry was always seen swinging his ever present basket, to and fro, leaving most of the people wondering what it was that was hidden under the cover.
Henry loved to tell the story about the first time that he was asked to be a  pall bearer. While at the graveside, Henry was standing perilously close to the edge and before he could do anything about it he slowly slid silently beneath the casket. There was neither a pause nor a snicker in the service as someone pulled Henry out. He was heard to say, "Never in my whole life did I have such a queer feeling."
Several years before his death, Henry thought that he had reached Seventh Heaven, he was invited to attend the opening ceremonies of the Nova Scotia Legislature. That afternoon Henry stood proudly in line at Rideau Hall, waiting to be presented to the Governor General of Canada. When Henry heard the Governor's aid call, "Mr. Henry Hensey," he said, "My feet took wings and I floated by. Perhaps nothing like that will happen again, but at least I can say 'I've been'."

Hell Bay Brewery - Coming to Liverpool

Hell Bay Brewing Company is a small, locally owned and operated Craft Brewery; recently moving from Mill Village to 38 Legion Street, Liverpool.

Liverpool Nova Scotia - Mildest Winters on the East Coast

Nova Scotia lies in the mid-temperate zone and, although the province is almost surrounded by water, the climate is closer to continental rather than maritime. The temperature extremes of the continental climate are moderated by the ocean.
Described on the provincial vehicle-licence plate as Canada's Ocean Playground, the sea is a major influence on Nova Scotia's climate. Nova Scotia's cold winters and warm summers are modified and generally moderated by ocean influences. The province is surrounded by three major bodies of water, the Gulf of Saint Lawrence to the north, the Bay of Fundy to the west, and the Atlantic Ocean  to the south and east.
While the constant temperature of the Atlantic Ocean moderates the climate of the south and east coasts of Nova Scotia, heavy ice build-up in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence makes winters colder in northern Nova Scotia; the shallowness of the Gulf's waters mean that they warm up more than the Atlantic Ocean in the summer, warming the summers in northern Nova Scotia. Summer officially lasts from the first Sunday in April to the Saturday before the last Sunday in October. Although Nova Scotia has a somewhat moderated climate, there have been some very intense heatwaves and cold snaps recorded over the past 160 years.
Due to the ocean's moderating effect Nova Scotia, on average is the warmest of the provinces in Canada. It has frequent coastal fog and marked changeability of weather from day to day.
Because Nova Scotia juts out into the Atlantic, it is prone to tropical storms and hurricanes in the summer and autumn. However due to the relatively cooler waters off the coast of Nova Scotia, tropical storms are usually weak by the time they reach Nova Scotia.

Liverpool's Pioneers - their story in murals

Liverpool's harbour was first an ancient seasonal camp of Nova Scotia's native Mi'kmaq and was known as Ogomkigeak meaning "dry sandy place" and Ogukegeok, meaning "place of departure".

Liverpool was founded in 1759 by early European explorers and its long and colourful history stretches through the passages of time for its residents of today.
Liverpool, as the largest population centre in the region of Queens County, has a diverse business community. Many large business franchises provide modern convenience, while the community's quaint small shops line the original business district on Main Street.
