Freo's View

That amazing Fremantle sand sculpture artist Tim Darby has done it again! Check out his latest work of Little Red Riding Hood and the Dragon on the verge at 16 Livingstone Street, Beaconsfield. Tim can be booked for assignments, so if your council, business or event wants something special give Tim a call.

People around Beaconsfield make sure to listen to the sounds of many bells at 8 am on Christmas morning when Tim, his partner Shani Graham, and friends will ring the bells from the roof terrace of the famous Jan ter Horst house on top of the hill. Many of the bells are over 100 years old!

ZINONGO GALLERY at 147 Lefroy Street, Beaconsfield will celebrate its 25th birthday on July 26 from 6-8 pm.

Zambian born Njalikwa Chongwe, his wife Jacqui and their three gorgeous daughters have become a landmark in their own right on the hill overlooking Fremantle.

Njalikwa is famous for his stunning raku ceramics and will open his studio to the public on June 28, so don’t miss this rare opportunity to see this great and likable artist at work.

Zinongo has been a family business deeply rooted in Fremantle for 25 long years, so go and say hello and buy a present for a loved one or spoil yourself!

Can someone responsible for Freospace at the City of Fremantle please help those who are doing the Beaconsfield precinct blog. It looks absolutely awful and it appears they do not know what they are doing.

Freospace is great so let’s help ALL precinct blogs look great and work well.

Thank you!

On Sunday the GROWERS GREEN MARKET at the South Fremantle Senior High School in Lefroy Street, Beaconsfield, will be celebrating its first birthday, so go along and support this inniative by a few local Fremantle women. It runs from 8.30-12.30 and there will be entertainment besides great fresh produce, meat, eggs and yummie food and coffee.

The market was started by Sonia Martinez, Georgie Adeane, Ingrid Waltham and Kathy Anketell and has proved to be a real Fremantle crowd puller.

The atmosphere is just great. I love the coffee, the ultra fresh free range eggs and vegies, and the whiskey cured smoked salmon is something I always need to take home.

This Sunday will be a BIG MARKET day with stalls selling hand-made, used and vintage clothing, crafts, gifts, books, and much more.

Bring the family! Plenty of space for the kids to have a run around and have fun, while the parents can sit down and have breakfast.
