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.

FREMANTLE POPULAR LEGO ADVENTURE

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.

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.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Posted in children, city of fremantle, family, mothers, mothers day, Uncategorized by freoview on May 10, 2020

 

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all the brilliant and adorable mums out there! You are all very special and deserve to be spoiled rotten today, even when cafes, restaurants and pubs are not open for sit down breakfast, lunch or dinner.

It is going to be fine and around 23 degrees in Fremantle today, so enjoy the parks and beaches, but please do still respect the social distancing rules because we want everyone to still be here next Mothers Day!

Have a great day and stay safe and well!

THANK YOU FREMANTLE POLICE

There are really nice people in the world, as this photo I took this morning proves. Walking back from Chalkys cafe where I had my take-away double espresso, I noticed this man with his kids and dog painting Thank You Police on the pavement in High Street next to the Fremantle Police Station.

The man said the cops do so much for everyone in the community that we should show we appreciate them. I certainly do!

And to show what an amateur and incompetent journalist I am, I forgot to ask for the man’s name. Sorry, mate!

UPDATE! The man’s name is Rob Cashman and he is the president of the Fremantle RSL. Thanks again, Rob!

COVID CRISIS NO TIME FOR PLAY

Posted in children, city of fremantle, community, covid-19, family, local government, skating, Uncategorized by freoview on March 31, 2020

 

 

It is sad to see the Fremantle Esplanade children’s playground closed because of the coronavirus, that comes out of the necessity for social distancing. It will be hard for parents, who have to restrict going out with their kids, to not be able to go to the playgrounds, but we all have to do as much as we can to try to stop the spread of this horrible virus.

I did not see any signs at the Esplanade Youth Plaza skate park to make users aware they can no longer use the facility, but the place was empty anyway mid afternoon today.

Stay safe, Freo and look after each other!
