The 1st of April. For many that means to be ready for a joker to surprise you.
However, this 1ST of APRIL 2020 marks 70 years since Bill Flynn commenced his building business. Born on 12/11/1930 he started his building career on 1/4/1950 in his 20th year.
After some time Bill ( the carpenter ) banded with his brothers Jack ( the bricklayer )and Michael ( the painter ) to form Flynn Brothers. They traded for some years before disbanding due to economic downturn.
His early years saw him building soldier settlement homes in the Western District. From there he built various housing projects in the Ballarat region. He has grown a successful business constructing many public buildings and projects over a long time and built up a property portfolio.
Today we remember the journey and celebrate 70 years of our building business. Carmel and I have been here for the last 30 years and have carried the baton on.
We don’t think Bill would be happy about the current status with the economy being shut down and empty streets around us but he would have continued on as he did all through his life, just dealing with whatever came his way. Virus or no Virus, just keep going.
We want to thank all those that have supported us along the journey. It's been a hell of a ride.
Peter and Carmel
