WHITE GUM VALLEY VERGES LOOKING GREAT

Posted in city of fremantle, entertainment, gardening, green space, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on August 21, 2019

 

 

Driving through White Gum Valley it looks like there is a Valley Verges project going on with many home owners planting verge gardens and even vegetable gardens.

They are assisted by the City of Fremantle’s Verge Preparation Assistance Scheme which offers free mulch and street trees, subsidised native plants and expert advise.

It’s looking great already!

FIRST FREMANTLE WINTER FESTIVAL STARTS

 

This year is the first time that the Fremantle Festival is held in winter and it starts this Friday.

Fremantle’s 10 Nights in Port is a celebration of contemporary music, theatre, visual arts, film and live performance fom July 12-21.

Spread across Fremantle’s precincts, 10 Nights in Port takes into consideration the traditions of the local community and the character of the historic city. Each component of the festival is carefully woven out of the fabric of this place, says Freo Mayor Brad Pettitt.

Feast of the Deceiver, presented by Secret Squirrel Produc,ons, is a WA first and will lure guests into a world of ulterior motives, an immersive game and luxury dining. The luscious six-course dinner will occur in a secret central Fremantle location and will keep diners on their toes.

Also premiering, The Miss Behave Gameshow is a freewheeling, high-energy variety whirlwind. Direct from her sold out seasons in Las Vegas and Sydney, London cabaret queen Amy Saunders (La Soiree, La Clique) will intoxicate audiences with her special brand of gliBering chaos.

In its ninth year, the highly successful Hidden Treasures winter music series will return as part of 10 Nights in Port with an earful of Freo balladeers, freshly-minted local bands and some favourite heroes of the Port City stage.

Between shows, audiences can take a Soak in a series of outdoor relaxation stations where they can submerge and unwind or warm themselves by one of the many Festival Fires around the city.

The Festival Club at the Moore&Moore cafe will also offer a place to leisurely hangout throughout 1the Fremantle Festival with a series of hearty communal dining experiences, delicious drinks and music.

HOW MANY MUSIC FESTIVALS FOR SOUTH BEACH?

 

The FPOL Committee of Fremantle Council will have to deal with the conundrum of how many festivals are sustainable for our Festival City.

Two event operators have requested to shift events from Port Beach to South Beach because of the uncertainty of the Port Beach erosion, but how many music and other summer events are acceptable to the South Fremantle community that is already getting the weekly Sunset Markets and a new tavern opening at the Sealanes site.

One also has to consider the beach goers whose local beach will be closed off and where parking will be a nightmare, so what is the solution?

Applications have been made for Sets on the Beach and Sundown Sessions, as well as For the Love music events on February 29, March 1 and March 7 so it would become very busy at South Beach.

City officers recommend that Council only approves one event at South Beach, but that would mean Fremantle loses two major events that would attract crowds of up to 5,000 each and that is not perfect either.

All events applied for are beach events so they can’t be shifted to Fremantle Oval or the Esplanade, and Bathers Beach is probably too small.

What will the preferred compromise be? Have your say at the FPOL Committee this Wednesday 6pm at the North Fremantle Community Hall.

CONFUSING CONFIDENTIALITY AT FREMANTLE COUNCIL

 

Although I have been closely following what goes on at Fremantle Council for over ten years I am still not sure why certain agenda items are considered to be confidential, and the public is excluded from attending the deliberations about them, while other similar topics remain open to the public and are not considered confidential.

On Wednesday the license agreement with the South Fremantle Football Club is a confidential item, but the license agreement for the public golf course is not.

Commercial confidentiality can hardly be the reason as there are no other clubs queuing up to lease Fremantle Oval, especially since the East Fremantle Football Club has decided to stay at East Fremantle Oval and not share Fremantle Oval with the South Fremantle footy club.

So what are the reasons for making an agenda item confidential in Fremantle?

Also confidential at the Ordinary Council meeting this coming Wednesday is a report about the Summer Event Series at Port Beach and another confidential report about a Port Beach Music/Lifestyle event. But the Winter Festival on the Esplanade was not a confidential item. Why?

Plus there is also the confidential report about the performance of the Chief Executive Officer.

All the cafes and restaurants around Freo are open today, but some will be closed tomorrow, so take advantage of that, and the Fremantle Markets and E Shed Markets are open, as are Fremantle Prison, the Roundhouse, Shipwrecks Museum and Maritime Museum.

And at the Fishing Boat Harbour the WA DAY Festival is on all day till 8pm.

FREMANTLE WINTER FESTIVAL PORT IN A STORM

 

Fremantle is well served in the West Australian today with a full page interview with Nicole Lockwood the Chair of the WestPort Taskforce which are looking into the future of Fremantle Port and a new port at Kwinana. Good read!

Freo is also getting a wrap about the new winter Fremantle Festival, but strange that info was not released to local media as well, so I’ll ‘quote’ from The West.

The Fremantle Festival will be held for the first time in its 113 years during winter from July 12-22 and it is called 10 Nights In Port.

Freo festival co-ordinator Kathryn Taylor told the West that they “wanted it to be the harbour in a storm” where the community warmth at the fire. That means people will be able to enjoy glasshouses and relax in a steamy hot bath while enjoying entertainment. Sounds corny and a bit like the swimming pools at the Big Bash 20/20 cricket.

The Hidden Treasures music festival in the West End will grow with Future Treasures at Freo.Social to nurture young bands, while the Festival Club will be in the Moore&Moore cafe in Henry Street.

The late Bathers Beach ceramicist Joan Campbell will be honoured with Fired Up, where people will make small vessels at the Fremantle Arts Centre and taken to Bathers Beach where they are fired in an outdoor kiln.

There is a lot of other stuff and I hope there will be plenty of free things to do and not just ticketed events lower income people can’t afford to enjoy.
