Tom Maher from Tatura Men’s Shed puts the paint work on ‘The Wall’.

Constructed by Tatura Men’s Shed, and with input from Tatura Community Plan Committee, Transition Tatura and community members, ‘The Wall’ is being created to share the aspirations of the community, by adding their goals to the statement ‘‘Before I die I want to . . . ’’

Tatura Community Plan spokesperson Marisa O’Halloran said with chalk provided, The Wall would be a space where residents of Tatura and surrounds, and visitors to the town, could put in writing what it is they wanted to do before they died.

‘‘The organisers feel this will be another great way to bring the community together, gather great ideas and to get people thinking; about not only what is important to them and how do they achieve it, but also what is important to others and how can we help,’’ Ms O’Halloran said.

‘‘The Wall will be in Stuart Mock Place and will be ready for your dreams and desires to be shared with the world. People are invited to come along and join in with their genuine ideas.’’

Ms O’Halloran said questions people could ask themselves before they wrote on The Wall included: what do I want to achieve, and why?; how will I feel if I achieve it?; what specific actions do I need to undertake to achieve it?; and, who can I ask to help me achieve my goals?

‘‘The organising group has been enjoying the buzz of getting this project going, and seeing the plan come together so quickly,’’ she said.

The Wall was due to be put in place yesterday.
