PIPES FOR FREMANTLE TRADERS LOYALTY CARD

 

Many traders in Fremantle’s West End are quite frustrated about the slow progress of the Pipes for Fremantle works in High Street and the road closures, with the noise and inconvenience keeping customers from visiting cafes and shops, so this new loyalty promotion by the Water Corporation will be welcome.

Fremantle Water Perks is a loyalty card competition which gives your customers a chance to win prizes by shopping at participating businesses in Fremantle.

 The prizes are 2 x $50 and 1x $100 vouchers per month from any of the participating businesses, as chosen by the winners. We will cover the cost of all cards, materials and prizes.

 The competition will run from Wednesday 1 July to Thursday 31 December 2020. Winners will be drawn every month from July 2020 through to January 2021.

The loyalty card has five water drops which are to be signed each time a customer makes a purchase at a participating business. Once all water drops on the card are signed, the customer leaves their completed card with a participating business. 

 Your business then drops the cards at the pop-up shop at 66 High Street before the last Thursday of each month. If you’d prefer, we can organise to collect the cards from you.

Winners will be drawn at random on the last Thursday of each month. We will work with the winners and businesses to redeem the vouchers.

 To take part, simply email Pipes for Perth and Water Corporation will provide 150 loyalty cards for you to collect from the pop-up shop.

We will promote your business’ involvement on our website, provide full competition instructions and terms and conditions, as well as a Fremantle Water Perks digital social media pack and point of sale material.

All businesses on streets in the 2019 and 2020 pipe renewal works are eligible to participate, including businesses on streets impacted by the Fremantle Drainage works. See the project website for a full list of eligible streets. 

For all Fremantle Water Perks enquiries, call Lara Fox, Senior Community Engagement Advisor, on 9420 2985 or email PipesforPerth@watercorporation.com.au.

The summer edition of the quarterly City of Fremantle FRE-OH! magazine is out and a great read. It will be delivered to your letterbox but is also available on-line on Facebook and the City’s website.

The cover is of the delightful milliner Kate Hulett, well known from her Kate and Abel hat shop at Many 2.0 and from her involvement with Spacemarket.

There is also a good story about Gerard O’Brien and Silverleaf Investments, and the brilliant restoration work they are doing at the historic Manning building, a story about new businesses, one about book clubs, a spread about North Fremantle, another one about lifesaving, etc. There is even a short story about this Loopy blogger in it.

FRE-OH! is a good way to stay connected with our community and to find out all about the latest news in the port city.

FREMANTLE WA’S BEST OPEN AIR SHOPPING

Posted in christmas, city of fremantle, local government, marketing, PR,, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on November 20, 2019

The City of Fremantle has released a light-hearted new video as part of its campaign to encourage more people to do their Christmas shopping in Fremantle, WA’s best open air shopping centre.

Directed by Fremantle-based photographer, film-maker and Australian Survivor contestant Jarrad Seng, the video stars local musician Timothy Nelson performing a Freo version of the classic carol The Twelve Days of Christmas while riding on the ferris wheel at the Esplanade Park.

It was shot at iconic Fremantle locations like the West End, Cappuccino Strip, Fremantle Markets and Bathers Beach and features products and styling from local designers, retail stores and boutiques.

“Our team had a lot of fun devising each mini-scene in a way that promoted great Fremantle stores, experiences and locations – as well as providing just that little pop of unexpected delight, which is also very Freo.

“In total over 70 locals volunteered their time to be a part of this and show their love for Fremantle and our entire film crew was sourced locally, which is a testament to the creative talent in town.

“Let me tell you, directing 11 nonnos in Gino’s to stay in one place and sip coffee in unison is no easy feat.”

The release of the video coincides with the launch of the City’s #shopfreo Christmas shopping competition.

Just spend $20 in any participating store and ask for your unique code, then go online to enter the codeword for your chance to win $500 to spend in the store.

Two winners will be drawn every Monday from 25 November through to 23 December.

To make shopping in Freo easier this Christmas the City of Fremantle is also offering up to two hours free parking at all of its off-street car parks.

Running from 1 December until Boxing Day, the free parking offer will be available Monday to Thursday from 9am-4pm via the City of Fremantle’s PayStay mobile parking app.

The PayStay app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or by visiting the PayStay website.

In addition to the free parking offer through PayStay, Free Parking Santa will also return to the streets of Fremantle this year offering to pay for shoppers parking at variety of car park ticket machines across the City.

Shoppers are urged to keep an eye on City of Fremantle social media for Free Parking Santa locations.

To enter the Christmas #shopfreo competition and find out more about what’s happening in Fremantle for Christmas go to visitfremantle.com.

It took an eternity but there is finally a prominent sign pointing to Fremantle’s inner city Bathers Beach. A nice big banner in Market Street near the High Street mall.

Well done City of Fremantle!

VISIT FREMANTLE, EVEN WHEN IT IS MELVILLE

Posted in city of fremantle, local government, marketing, PR,, Uncategorized by freoview on October 20, 2019

 

I thought I was pretty on the ball and well informed but I must have totally missed a more recent council amalgamation. On Facebook this morning VISIT FREMANTLE gushes about  the Top Dup Donuts shop in Willagee, but I believed Willagee was in the City of Melville.

Yesterday a letter writer from Palmyra complained in the Fremantle Herald, what is happening to our city. He meant Fremantle and is clearly not aware that he lives in Melville.

I am all for a bigger Fremantle and local government reform, but until that happens Visit Fremantle should really promote Freo businesses.
