Celebrating 10 years of BRRA

Celebrating 10 years of BRRA
15 March 2021

The Bullsbrook Residents and Ratepayers Association (BRRA) has been at the heart of the Bullsbrook community for the past almost 11 years.

Plans for an official anniversary celebration may have been scuppered last year due to COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean the busy community organisation is letting the milestone slip by.

BRRA President Craig Hollett says the annual Bullsbrook Country Fair this month will be the perfect opportunity to celebrate both the anniversary and the fantastic Bullsbrook community spirit.

“The word community is key in Bullsbrook. It is a community and very different to living in the ‘burbs. In Bullsbrook, people come together; you know your neighbours and the people in the area,” Craig says.

A not-for-profit organisation, BRRA has around 100 members and more than 3,300 followers on Facebook keeping up to date with events, issues and community news.

The thriving community organisation prides itself on promoting the interest of Bullsbrook’s residents and ratepayers, from being a voice on local issues, to supporting local businesses.

It has also been involved in numerous local events and initiatives over the years, including blue light discos, outdoor movie nights, a high tea, family fun days, swap meets, carols by candlelight and community markets.

But the annual Bullsbrook Country Fair is now by far the biggest event on the BRRA calendar, with upwards of 10,000 people expected to attend this year.
