MIDLAND’S local legends will be honoured in a permanent Walk of Fame to be part of the newly refurbished Cale Street dining precinct.

The walk, which will pay homage to 100 local legends past and present, will see engraved bricks placed along the street as a permanent commemoration to some of the influential locals that have shaped the community.

Community members are asked to nominate individuals they believe fit the title of local legend during a two-week nomination period which runs until Saturday, June 16.

The local legends will be chosen by a judging panel that will include Lost Mundaring and Surrounds Facebook page operator Owen Briffa, Midland and Districts Historical Society’s Matthew Pavlinovich and City of Swan local history librarian Jude Carr.

Midland Gate has pledged to donate $50 per brick or selected local legend to one of four local charities, including Swan City Youth Service, CLAN Midland, People Who Care and Swan Animal Haven.

Centre manager Alison Broadbent said the Walk of Fame acknowledged those that have had a profound effect on the 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 is the ideal place for the Walk of Fame as it will be a place where people come together to share meals, enjoy the outdoors and gather with friends and family.”

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