Volunteers busy at old brick building

A group of Cranbrook volunteers spent last Sunday afternoon (April 26) washing bricks and they’re going to do it again this Sunday (May 3).

The work is being done as part of the upgrades to the old Brick Building, located behind City Hall in Cranbrook, explained volunteer Karen Waltham.

The cleaned bricks will be re-used “to re-build the back wall of the building. After what seemed like a long winter, work finally began on the building recently. Local Mason and bricklayer Karl Schmideder Jr. dismantled the back wall, and is using the cleaned bricks, and original mortar, to rebuild the wall,” Waltham said.

There will be another brick cleaning this coming Sunday, May 3, at 1 p.m., at the building. Volunteers are welcome to join in on the work bee.

Additionally, anyone who wants to come down during the week, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., to assist Mr Schmideder is more than welcome!
