There is a fantastic line-up of local musos to support their mate at this family friendly event at Princess May Park.

Tickets are only $ 25,00 for a great balmy night out and help someone who deserves our support.

All proceeds are going to Steve Gibson and his young family.

ASBESTOS FEAR AT ROE 8 CONSTRUCTION SITE

Posted in fremantle, health, health&safety, perth freight link, roe 8 highway by freoview on January 16, 2017

Residents near the Roe 8 highway clearing at the Beeliar Wetlands have raised serious concerns about the lack of dust repression measures by the building contractors. They say the area is a known location for asbestos dumping and that the clearing of the bushland is dangerous for the health of local residents, police officers and workers.

It seems unbelievable that the EPA, Worksafe and unions do not insist on watering trucks being used to spray down the dust at the Roe 8 works, as that is even required in the most remote locations of WA at mining sites.

I have been to hundreds of mines around Australia in the last 30 years and have never not seen dust repression measures at any of them, so why does the WA state government ignore this basic rule of protecting the health of everyone near the construction site?

CARING FIONA STANLEY TREATMENT

Posted in fremantle, health, hospital, western australia by freoview on January 5, 2017

There is a lot of negativity about public health care, the delay of the new Children’s Hospital and also issues at Fiona Stanley, so it’s good I can write something positive about it.

My experience yesterday at the Fiona Stanley Hospital emergency department was nothing but perfect as far as my treatment was concerned.

The young Irish doctor was extremely thorough in asking questions, to the point that I wondered why my GPs rarely ever ask such probing questions. The nurses were also very efficient, professional and very easy going and I have nothing but praise for the department, its delightful staff and the gentle care they gave me.

The system might be flawed but definitely not where the medical staff is involved. They are pretty perfect, so thank you very much to all the people who looked after me yesterday!

LOOPY NOT GONE AWOL

Posted in fremantle, health by freoview on January 3, 2017

Regular readers of Freo’s View will be surprised about the lack of activity on my blog but unfortunately I am not well and have hardly left home the last five days, hence I have not taken any photos or picked up any stories to report about. Worst of all though I haven’t had an espresso in five days either. ; >)

I hope the medication will kick in soon as my condition is very painful and all will be back to normal on Freo’s View.

NGANGKARI HEALING AT FREO’S REPLANTS

Posted in aboriginal, fremantle, health, indigenous by freoview on November 15, 2016

There is an interesting event on this Saturday November 19 at REPLANTS , 96 Wray Avenue, Fremantle. The Traditional Ngangkari Healers will show you the world of the Ngangkari indigenous people, and their wisdom, natural healing and cultural history.

Australia’s Aboriginal history is 50,000 years old, so there is a lot we can learn from it.

The event is on from 7-9 pm and costs $ 40.00 with light refreshments served.

The Ride To Work breakfast was held at Fremantle Kings Square this morning and was appreciated by many cyclists who turned up for yummy South American baked beans and eggs, muffins and great coffee while checking out electric and cargo bikes.

Nice to see City of Fremantle CEO Phil StJohn up and about early and enjoying a hearty breaky.

The annual Distinguished Gentlemen Club came to Fremantle today with a very noisy parade on their old and new motorbikes through the Cappuccino Strip.

The fundraiser for prostate cancer is a lot of fun to watch as the riders and passengers dress up.
