With thousands of memories made at the maternity ward of the former Orange Base Hospital, the community has been emotional, as the building has been demolished.
To commemorate the history of the site, the Orange City Council put in place a unique initiative.
From Now until the 12th of November, we can drop by the Ophir Road Resource Recovery Centre, and pick up a brick from the maternity ward, in exchange for a gold-coin donation.
All the funds raised will be provided to the Premi- Babes Association of Orange.
The council is advising residents that we can not pick up any bricks from the construction site.
