JAZZ AT EAST FREO’S DUKE OF GEORGE

 

The Duke of George in East Fremantle is launching its dedicated “Jazz Thursdays” with double Grammy Award winner and local music legend Lucky Oceans, and two of Australia’s greatest US-based jazz musicians, saxophonist Troy Roberts and guitarist Tim Jago on Thursday 30 July.

Due to the Covid-19  pandemic, Troy and Tim have temporarily returned to the relative safety or their hometown, Perth. New York-based saxophonist Troy Roberts has recorded 12 albums in his own name, been nominated for two Grammy Awards and has played with Herbie Hancock, Kurt Elling, Van Morrison, and Wayne Shorter.

At the Ordinary meeting held on 16 June 2020, East Fremantle Council endorsed a new Master Plan for the precinct north of Preston Point Road, overlooking the Swan River, to guide the site’s future development.

The vision includes improvements to facilities for community services, local sports and passive recreation.

The Town thanks everyone who contributed to the Master Plan, made possible through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries CSRF Fund.

Where to from here? The proposed elements will be mapped for monitoring and review, along with seeking funding partners to enable implementation.

A WALK DOWN RIVERSIDE DRIVE

I had a walk down Riverside Drive in East Fremantle yesterday afternoon. There is serious roadwork going on, so the road is blocked for traffic from East Street to the Leeuwin Barracks.

I took a couple of historic Covid-19 photos and the lovely giant teddy on a balcony.

We are in for a few warm days, so take advantage of them and go for long walks or rides and explore the hood.
