Madora Bay is looking for historic photos with two milestones coming up

MADORA Bay celebrates two milestones this year and next.

The Madora Bay Hall turns 40 this year and next year it will be 60 years since the original Madora Bay was subdivided.

To recognise the milestones, Madora Bay Community Association wants residents to tell them what makes Madora Bay special.

In partnership with Mandurah Baptist College, the City of Mandurah and Mandurah Historical Society, Madora Bay residents past and present will be interviewed and organisers hope to gain a wide range of historic photographs of the suburb.

Madora Bay Community Association hosts a morning tea on Thursday (March 21) from 11am to 12.30pm at the hall at which residents can be interviewed, share their stories and hopefully take along some old photos of the suburb.

The project will represent a celebration of identity and gain a perspective on what Madora Bay was like, what it is like today and what can be done to make it special into the future.

Madora Bay Community Association and Mandurah Baptist College is working with students to create a short film from the interviews and enter the Mandurah Short Film Festival and potentially create a photographic calendar for 2020.

RSVP to the morning tea to lisav@mbc.wa.edu.au.
