The Balingup Peace Pergola is dedicated to world peace. The pergola is the result of several years of planning, particularly by community member, Mr Bob Bracey. After various efforts Mr Bracey obtained a grant from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs for $3 500, which, although it was not as much as was needed, was enough to buy the materials. With voluntary labour, a pergola was built next to the war memorial.
