"Originally people were encouraged to book their spot and come along to Thompson Square on July 19 to sign the petition and ring the bell in support of the campaign," a Hawkesbury City Council spokesperson said.

"However, we have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and the changing restrictions, and for this reason we have decided to cancel the petition signing on July 19.
