With Langford’s plans to build the Sarah Beckett Memorial Playground in its final stages, the Rotary Club of West Shore has launched a ‘Buy A Brick’ program to raise money for playground equipment.

Cst. Sarah Beckett was killed while on patrol in April 2016, when a drunk driver in a pick-up truck collided with her police cruiser. She is survived by her husband and two young children.

To support the memorial park and help build the children’s playground, community members can purchase a personalized engraved brick for $200.

All proceeds from the bricks will go directly towards building the park and acquiring playground equipment.

The bricks can be engraved with a range of messages, and will be permanently installed in the area.

“Get creative and engrave [your name], your company name, favorite quote, or honour your own loved one by buying a brick in their memory,” said the West Shore RCMP in a statement.

In total, the bricks can accommodate 3 lines of text with a maximum of 18 characters and spaces per line.

The Sarah Beckett Memorial playground will be located next to the City Centre Park Stadium in Langford, and is expected to open on August 24th, 2019.

The park will be divided into two parts, one section for children aged 2 to 5 years old, and one area for children aged 5 to 12 years old.
