Last day to nominate a Midland legend

IT is your last chance to nominate a local legend to be honoured in a permanent Walk of Fame on Cale Street.

The walk will pay homage to past and present influential Midland locals with engraved bricks along the newly refurbished dining precinct.

Nominations close today, Saturday, June 16.

Midland Gate centre manager Alison Broadbent said the Walk of Fame was designed to acknowledge those that have had a profound effect on the local community.

“Midland is such a unique community with so many wonderful individuals that have contributed in so many ways to make it into the great community it is today,” she said.

“The Cale Street dining precinct will be a place where people come together to share meals, enjoy the outdoors and gather with friends and family – it’s the ideal location to place our walk of fame.”

Nominations will be collected with 100 ‘Local Legends’ chosen via a judging panel that includes Lost Mundaring and Surrounds Facebook page operator, Owen Briffa, Midland and Districts Historical Society’s, Matthew Pavlinovich and City of Swan history librarian Jude Carr.

Midland Gate has pledged to donate $50 per selected Local Legend to one of four local charities. 

Nominators are asked to select from Swan City Youth Service, CLAN Midland, People Who Care and Swan Animal Haven at the time of lodging their nomination.

“If there is someone in the community – past or present – that you feel should have a brick on the ‘Walk of Fame’, then we urge you to get nominating,” Ms Broadbent said.

The Local Legends Walk of Fame will be unveiled at a community ceremony on Sunday, August 12.
