Community member Dave Clare was just one of the many locals to be involved in Brickstory. The official unveiling of the Brickstory project will take place this Thursday.

WA Country Builders and the City of Greater Geraldton teamed up to bring the community the Brickstory project and next week the unveiling of the anticipated Brickstory project will be announced. 

The Geraldton community is invited to a free event to celebrate the Brickstory project, find out what community project will be built, and see which lucky local is the winner of a brand new Toyota Corolla. The event will be held on Thursday, January 22 at the Queen’s Park Theatre at 5:30pm.

The project, which commenced last year, gave the community the opportunity to be a part of Geraldton’s history.

People signed up for their very own virtual brick and then had the opportunity to vote for one of four important community projects to be built in the community by WA Country Builders. 

The four options are 'Welcome to Geraldton' signs, shade shelters and seating at the Marina, upgrades to the Community Nursery and toilet blocks at Back Beach and Glendinning Park.

WA Country Builders will announce what the community has chosen to be the Brickstory project at the event on Thursday. 

Also as part of getting your virtual brick, people were sent an I ♥ GERO bumper sticker and by displaying it on their vehicle, they are in the draw to win a brand new Toyota Corolla which will also be drawn at the event. 

WA Country Builders Mid West General Manager, Phil Raven, said the project was about giving back to the community.

“WA Country Builders have been in Geraldton for 20 years and we wanted to give something back to the community, so we are going to build a structure that is voted by locals and acknowledges the town that has supported us for the past two decades,” he said.

Mayor Ian Carpenter praised WA Country Builders for a fantastic initiative which would provide a positive outcome for the community.

“We are so very happy to be involved with such an amazing local project which is giving something straight back to the community,” he said.

“WA Country Builders are the definition of a true local business and on behalf of Geraldton we want to thank them for this addition to our community.”
