VQ Christmas Dec 7

 

An early note that the Fremantle Ports Victoria Quay Christmas Carnival will be on this coming Saturday December 7.

The free fun is on from 3-9pm with free rides for the kids, food stalls to buy dinner from, port and sunset views, etc.  The perfect way to end a Saturday.

Kids will enjoy an Elf Show, skate workshops, face painting, giant bubbles and, of course, a visit from Santa himself, while big kids can grab a bite to eat from a selection of food trucks, browse market stalls, groove along to the sounds of WA Samba  and take in great roving performances ‑ all set against the stunning backdrop of the working port.

I’ll see you there!

There is not a lot of good Christmas decoration in Fremantle so Cicerello’s in the Fishing Boat Harbour deserves credit for this great display.

The thousands of little lights moving in the breeze look stunning, so take your children for a stroll one evening from about 7.30pm.

The North Fremantle Primary School is having an Open Day this Sunday from 10am till 12 noon, so it is a very short ‘open day’ and more an open lunchtime event.

It coincides with the annual North Freo Cake Bake, so enjoy the cakes and coffee and all the fun.

TAKING THE PUPPETS TO THE BEACH

Spare Parts

 

Get ready for summer with On Our Beach. This hands-on, shoes-off, mozzie-repellent adventure live on stage, as Spare Parts Puppet Theatre becomes one gigantic play space for the next school holidays from September 28.

Written by award-winning playwright, Peta Murray, On Our Beach uses puppetry, interactivity and immersion to explore ideas of identity, belonging, and our connection to others and to the land we all live on.

In the show, the audience is taken on a journey through the world of a fantastical beach to discover what it is that unites us, and brings us together, that transcends flags and clothes or the colour of our skin.

Writer, Peta Murray said that On Our Beach explores notions of popularity, belonging, and resilience through playing games of fun and adventure together.

On Our Beach is about navigating relationships in a world that is sometimes fair and sometimes not,” she said. “Through games and activities, the production explores the fear that all of us experience at some point of missing out, being left out, or simply, just not being ‘in’.”

The school holidays season of On Our Beach starts on September 28. The show is 50 minutes long and suitable for all ages, but perfect for five and above. Performances are scheduled daily at 10am and 1pm (except Sundays and public holidays), with special twilight shows at 6.30pm on October 4 and 11. Bookings are essential and can be made online 24/7 at www.sppt.asn.auor by calling 9335 5044

We all know that Freo people are very special, even our maligned politicians, and the WA state member for Fremantle Simone McGurk proved that by abseiling the huge Central Park building in Perth to raise money for CAHOOTS.

CAHOOTS runs programs for children and youth with a disability and our Minister for Child Protection went above-well above!- and beyond to support them.

Well done Simone!

BIG GRANT FOR KINGS SQUARE PLAYGROUND

The City of Fremantle has been successful in securing a $342,000 grant from Lotterywest to go towards the new play space in Kings Square.

Inspired by the Fremantle’s industrial history and close links with nature, the concept design for the play space includes features such as cranes, bridges, train tracks and shipping containers and incorporates natural elements including water and trees.

It’s also set to feature bold lighting treatments, interactive soundscapes and tactile nature play elements.

The concept is for the play space to have zones which will appeal to a broad age range from toddlers through to primary school children, as well as being accessible for children with disabilities.

Programmable lighting elements will also highlight the play space features at night, creating a whole new look and feel after dark and to make it a feature of the broader public space in Kings Square.

Around 170 Fremantle kids and their parents were asked to help design the new play space through surveys and a series of workshops at local schools.

WA-based landscape architecture firm Seedesign Studio were selected via a competitive tender process to develop a concept based on their feedback.

Construction on the play space is expected to start in August 2020 and be completed by December.

A focal point for the play space will be a new Moreton Bay fig tree to replace the tree that had to be removed last year due to public safety concerns.

A replacement fig tree has been identified and is being prepared for relocation from Ord Street to Kings Square in winter next year.
