FIVE MILLION DOLLAR PRESENT FOR FREMANTLE?

It’s always good to start the weekend, especially a wet and stormy one, with good news about Fremantle, even if that news is so far only a rumour on the grapevine, but I expect Freo City to officially confirm it next week.

So what’s the good news? The City has received an unexpected and very welcome $ 5 million present, I hear from my always reliable sources, so where did the money come from and what will it be spent on?

I don’t believe they won Lotto or went to the casino, and I strongly reject the nasty thoughts that the present comes from Sunset Events. ; >)

The Fremantle Roundhouse volunteers are in need of only $ 200,000 for new interpretive historic displays, so make that a priority please Fremantle Council! Thank you in advance.
