Freo's View

The launch by Premier Colin Barnett of the book Fighting For Fremantle, written by Ron and Dianne Davidson, was a huge success. The gorgeous renovated Victoria Hall was the perfect venue, and over 200 people attended the function, amongst them many city councilors, Mayor Brad Pettitt, politicians Lynn McLaren and Adele Carles, former ones Peter Dowding and Jim McGinty, Fremantle Ports CEO Chris Leatt-Hayter, East Fremantle CEO Stuart Wearne, and many other well-known people, including ABC political reporter Peter Kennedy. It was a pity that inspirational Les Lauder, who features prominently in the book, could not be there.

It was an evening full of community spirit and good food and wine.
