Children are the future. They are very special and deserve to be protected and supported by the entire community. Without children there is no future, so let’s make sure each and every one receives proper care and education and let them enjoy their childhood.

Kids have such enormous potential that only needs to be nurtured by us grownups, but Aboriginal children are often disadvantaged, so let’s all take on that responsibility for all children all over Australia!

It’s Aboriginal Children’s Day today.

Really fantastic to see that the LEGO Adventure Trail has to be cut short due to its popularity, as the message below from the City of Fremantle indicates:

Due to popular demand, Thursday 9 July will be the last day for the LEGO Adventure Trail. We’ve completely exhausted Perth’s entire supply of LEGO Minifigures. Make sure you get in early as once we run out that’s it folks.

It was great to see so many families having fun in Fremantle this week doing the trail.

Kids will still be able to pick up an adventure trail map from the visitor centre in Kings Square and collect the 5 stamps on their map to go into the draw to win one of 3 LEGO vouchers from Toyworld Fremantle.

And don’t forget the live build with Fremantle’s very own LEGO Master Alex Towler and Jackson Harvey on Thursday 16 July from 10-2 pm in Kings Square.

Amazing! The City of Fremantle LEGO Adventure Trail for school holidays is a huge success. This morning I witnessed hundreds of little kids and parents walking down High Street and others were lining up at the Visitor Centre to get started.

It must be one of the most popular school holidays projects Fremantle has done. Great job to see so many people coming into town and visiting shops to get the stamps!

Great to see a long queue of parents and children at the City of Fremantle Visitor Centre at Kings Square. They are all lining up for the LEGO Adventure Trail.

From today Monday 6 July until Sunday 19 July, kids will be able to collect an Adventure Trail map from the Fremantle Visitor Centre in Kings Square.

The map will guide them to participating stores in Fremantle’s historic West End, where they’ll be able to collect the pieces for their very own LEGO toy.

The little explorers can use the Adventure Trail map to find their way through the streets of Freo and spot the LEGO-themed shop windows to collect the pieces.

There are six different toys available for the kids to build, but stocks are limited so they should get in quick.

As they visit each store they can also collect special stamps on their map. Collect all five stamps and they can enter the draw to win one of three LEGO vouchers from Toyworld Fremantle.

It’s not only children who like the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions and the re-opening of playgrounds, as this photo of the cockatoos taken at the Fremantle Esplanade this morning shows.

There are heaps of these beautiful birds in Freo currently. They are noisy though. ;>))

The State Government, through Lotterywest, has provided a $50,000 grant to the Lucy Saw Centre.

This grant will help its centres, based in Rockingham and Fremantle, to support women and children experiencing domestic and family violence.

Established in 1977, the Lucy Saw Centre offers tailored wraparound services to more than 800 women and children in need each year.

The organisation which operates two refuges, a Safe at Home Program and a Coordinated Response Service is one of the latest grant recipients to receive funding from Lotterywest’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.

The State Government, through Lotterywest, has committed $159 million into a COVID-19 Relief Fund to respond to the hardship being experienced by the Western Australian community as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lotterywest’s COVID-19 Relief Fund is helping to meet costs related to increased demand for crisis relief services impacted by COVID-19.

FREO BACK TO BUSY AGAIN

 

 

It is a lot busier in Fremantle than on the previous weekends, but not anywhere near as packed as I thought and hoped it would be.

Nice to see kids at the Esplanade playground and the skatepark again, and people enjoying the alfresco.

The social distancing requirements made for a very colourful photo of chairs at the food market.
