Twin Fin

 

A new Fish&Chips outlet has opened at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach. TWIN FIN has taken over the site where Sweetlips used to be, so make sure to give it a try and support a new small business in town.

Four tall new lights have been installed along the Fremantle Bathers Beach dune path to replace the small solar lights that were constantly vandalised by brainless idiots.

The new lights will flood the area and will make it a bit safer at night as well one hopes.

Now all beach goers are hoping for the City of Fremantle to clean up the inner city beach more often and remove all the smelly seaweed from it.

Get ready for a spring stinker, Freo! The weather forecast is for a very hot Friday with temperatures expected to rise as high as 39C, while on Saturday it will be just a wee bit cooler than that with 35C.

Don’t forget that Fremantle’s inner city beach Bathers Beach is one of our quietest beaches and well worth a visit for those who don’t like big crowds on beaches, especially because of its proximity to the Fishing Boat Harbour, so plenty of places to buy food and cold drinks.

And there is an abundance of parking in the vicinity.

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!

FREO ART PRECINCT NOT A FAILURE SAY ARTISTS

Posted in art, bathers beach art precinct, city of fremantle, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on October 25, 2019

 

There is a bit of a backlash from Arthur’s Head artists against Mayor Brad Pettitt’s claim in the Fremantle Herald last week that the Bathers Beach Art Precinct concept had failed.

David Giles, Glen Cowans, Greg James, Jenny Dawkins and peter Zuvela all pointed out that they have been very successful up on the Roundhouse hill and at J Shed for many years and that it might just be time for Fremantle Council to acknowledge the success of these artists and support them better.
