FREO’S WRAY AVENUE A PLACE OF SPECIAL PEOPLE
Community spirit in Fremantle always warms my heart. When people take the initiative in their own hands, instead of complaining council or someone should be doing things, good positive things happen. One of those was the Verging Bushland project at Wray Avenue where local people worked from early morning till late, with support of Fremantle council, to plant Xanthorroeas along the verges.
The gorgeous little black trees are better known as Blackboys but I was told off that this is now inappropriate and politically incorrect. So it is wrong to say Fremantle MP Melissa Parke has now two black boys in front of her office. Deputy and acting Freo Mayor Josh Wilson and his family were out there this morning to dig holes and Heath Adams was the initiator of the project.
Xanthorroeas are very slow growing but live up to 600 years, so future generations will thanks the present residents of Wray Avenue for their hard work and initiative. Well done all!!
