Carboot sale Aug. 20

 

If you have things you want to sell, why not join this Sunday’s CARBOOT SALE at the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market in Annie Street in Beaconsfield.

The market is on from 8am till noon and sells great fresh produce and yummy breakfast, and lots of other things.

It is a fantastic community event for all and the perfect way for catching up with friends, or make new ones.

Kids and dogs also love the Growers Green!

FREO MARRIAGE EQUALITY RALLY

Posted in city of fremantle, community, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 16, 2017

 

Marriage equality Aug 25

 

An early warning that there will be a marriage equality rally held in Fremantle on Friday week August 25 at 5 pm.

It will be under the Freo Rainbow container artwork at Canning Highway, opposite Cantonment Hill.

I support the rally and marriage equality, but question the location at that time of the day, as it will be dangerous crossing the very busy road during peak hour traffic.

I do appreciate the symbolism of the rainbow artwork, but is it really safe to have the rally there?

BABY GIRL FOR FREMANTLE MAYOR

Posted in city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 11, 2017

 

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS! to Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt and his partner Emma.

The couple had their first child earlier this week. It’s a girl!!!!

No doubt the parents are as much in awe off their newborn as I am about babies in general. These beautiful little creatures are the true miracles in the world and a blessing.

FREMANTLE GENERATIONS

Posted in bicycles, city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized by freoview on July 25, 2017

 

generations 1

generations 2

 

In between showers yesterday it was quite pleasant in Fremantle and father and son took advantage of it, feeding the seagulls in the Fishing Boat Harbour.

It something the traders there don’t like, hence the signs, Don’t feed the seagulls or they’ll S.O.Y (Shit On You).

Walking around town I noticed these three generations of bicycles parked at Phillimore Street and thought they looked cute.

FREO NEEDS FAMILY FRIENDLY DEVELOPMENT

Posted in architecture, city of fremantle, family, living, Uncategorized by freoview on July 6, 2017

 

Interesting to read that there is an increasing demand for big 3-4 bedroom apartments by people who want to down-size from a house to a unit.

There is and oversupply of small 1-2 bedroom apartments in the Perth metropolitan area and some planned projects have been put on hold or cancelled because supply well exceeds demand in these difficult economic times.

The demand is for extra and larger living spaces for families and also for the 3rd or 4th bedroom to be used as a home office.

I believe this is relevant for Fremantle where new residential apartments don’t appear to cater for singles and couple, but not for families.

Freo is a family city and we love kids and it would be a shame if new infill development did exclude families because the units are too small and not family friendly.

WINTERWORLD A LOT OF FREO FUN!

Posted in city of fremantle, family, skating, winter by freoview on June 24, 2017

 

 

Fremantle WINTERWORLD on the Esplanade is a lot of fun, so don’t forget to go there.

There is no greater pleasure for me than seeing happy children and they love the ice skating, the big slide and also the snow dome where they can build a real snowman.

There is mulled wine and spit roast, coffee, cakes and other yummy things and the Esplanade Youth Plaza skatepark next to Winterworld is also heaps of fun.

FREO’S WARM WINTER WORLD

Posted in children, city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized, winter by freoview on June 20, 2017

 

The Fremantle WINTERWORLD skate season is on again at the Esplanade from this Saturday June 24 to July 16, so make sure to take the kids there for a day of fun and sore bottoms.

It is in the Italian Club carpark just metres away from the Esplanade Youth Plaza, so if the weather remains as sunny as it it the two combined make a perfect day out for families.

There will be food stalls, a bar, mulled wine, so a great celebration of winter and the Freo lifestyle.

FREMANTLE WA DAY PHOTOS

WA DAY 1

 

Children outnumbered adults in Fremantle today as large family groups, babies and prams came to celebrate WA DAY on the Esplanade and all around town.

Some cafes were closed and others charged a public holiday surcharge, but who cares, the sun is shining, the sky is blue and it’s pretty warm for a winter’s day.

FOREVER BORING HILTON LIFE

Posted in children, city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized by freoview on April 27, 2017

There are not many endearing moments at local council meetings but last night’s City of Fremantle meeting had some cute moments about the plans for a pocket park in Hilton.

A very brave and articulate 10-year-old girl addressed Council and urged members to approve the plans, and mothers of other children read out letters written by them.

Another ten-year-old wrote that the new small park would enable them to meet new people from the suburb and meet other families.

But the laugh of the night came from an eight-year-old boy who wrote that without the park life would be boring forever.

One mum mused that while her introvert child wanted to stay at home, the extravert one wanted to go out, and it would be much safer if she could let him go to a park nearby, rather than to another park that required crossing a busy road.

Council unanimously voted to approve the pocket park.
