Pastime is a free series of casual talks and Q and A sessions with local and visiting historians for your enjoyment. Our presenter for this session is Kerry Trantham on The Deconstruction of the Bunbury Jetty. Date: Sunday 31 July 2022 Time: 1:30pm to 3:00pm Free entry, RSVPs via Eventbrite are encouraged.  Kerry Trantham is a Bunbury boy born and bred, who like so many others spent countless hours fishing from our historic jetty as a young boy. Forty plus years later, he found himself ironically with mixed emotions playing a part in the deconstruction of this jetty. Since then, with the help of local Burekup man Mark Hutchison and his mill, Kerry has been cutting and supplying some of the left-over beams and piles to building projects. The timber has gone as far as Muchea to the north and as far south as Augusta, some even going East, with Mark and Kerry meeting some very creative people along the way. Kerry will share his photos and footage of the day-to-day deconstruction of the beloved Bunbury jetty, and cover some of the challenges that arose during the process. While accepting the need for this jetty to be deconstructed, this is an opportunity to appreciate those who built it - and we can't forget those who tried so hard to save it. Kerry will also present examples of building projects that have since beautifully re-used the amazing timber from the jetty.1 Arthur Street
