                       OUR BEGINNING

On the 13th February 1994 an informal meeting of "Old Identities" was held to discuss the formation of a Heritage Group within the district of Pickering Brook. It was the brain child of former resident, David Godbold, who had a dream to capture and record the history of the district. Unfortunately David has passed away, but his dream is still alive and active.

The first official meeting of the formed Pickering Brook Heritage Group, was held at the Pickering Brook Primary School on the 30th March 1994. David Godbold was elected as President and the Committee Members as follows:

The Aims of the Pickering Brook Heritage Group were established and reported as follows:

 

   
  1. Record interviews of district elders, which could subsequently be committed to a written word.
  2. Collect household and farming articles for preservation.
  3. Collect and preserve photographic evidence still in existence including newspaper articles, letters and minutes of early committee meetings and their relevant groups.
  4. Investigate the possibility of acquiring an appropriate "old" building reflecting the early timber industry. Such a building to be re-located to the original site of the Carilla Hall and to be used to store and display the history of the district.
  5. To act as a focus for the long term preservation of the history of the district.
  6. To seek approval from the Kalamunda Shire to use the reserve which was the original site of the Carilla Hall to re-locate a historic building for the exclusive use of the Pickering Brook Heritage Group and members of the community.
  7.  Identify points of local interest.
