Children are the future of our planet so if we can support them we should do so.
The Fremantle Moore&Moore cafe is collection clothing, books and toys to distribute to disadvantaged kids, so if you’ve got anything, or want to buy some new stuff to donate, please drop it off at 46 Henry Street in Freo’s gorgeous West End.
Now here is a innovative approach by the City of Fremantle to try to accommodate Circus WA.
The community group has been given notice by state agency Artsource to vacate its existing premises on Phillimore Street by 7 April 2017.
Circus WA is seeking approval from the City to licence a portion of Princess May Park to temporarily accommodate its operations. It plans to erect a large tent to the west of the Old Boys School that will allow it to operate for up to three years while it identifies appropriate long term premises in another part of Fremantle.
Nearby businesses DADAA, Clancy’s Fish Pub and The Fremantle Education Centre are supportive of the temporary move.
The proposed licence is for 1 year with two further terms of 1 year each at the City’s approval. This means that the City has the option not to extend for the second or third year should the license conflict with the development of 2 Point Street.
I am not sure how practical this is going to be with the imminent development of the Hilton Doubletree Hotel just west of the proposed location for the tent, and also the security of the tent with Princess May Park being infamous for being a favourite location for homeless people day and night.
Circus WA has been looking for new premises in Fremantle for many years and wanted to share the Naval Stores at Cantonment Hill with Enkel but that fell unfortunately through.
The item is on the agenda for Wednesday’s FPOL Committee.
Opening of the new children’s playground at the Paper Bird children’s bookshop and Moore&Moore cafe in Henry Street this Sunday February 19 from 9-11.30.

The City of Fremantle is planning a nationwide competition for the design of a nature playground at Kings Square as part of the Kings Square Project development.
The area allocated would be to the east of the St John’s church, on land owned by the church, and close to the new cafe that will be part of the new Civic Centre and Library at Kings Square.
It is estimated the design and construction of the playground will cost $ 500,000.00.
A jury which would have members of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, CoF Design Advisory Committee and Fremantle City officers would decide on the winning submission for the project.
The well-established Moore&Moore cafe and the one-year-old Paper Bird children’s book shop in Fremantle’s Henry Street have combined their talents to create a Nature Play area in the courtyard of the gorgeous heritage Moores building.
The courtyard of the M&MN has always been very Freo and cosy but by linking it with the courtyard of the lovely bookshop is has become even more special, so parents check it out. Nice to have a safe playground away from traffic in the old inner city.
Very good to hear also that the sales of children’s books has increased by 15 per cent in the last year. I have always been an avid reader and love it when children read instead of sitting in front of the TV, X Box or the computer.
Reading inspired me to travel, made me aware of other cultures and gave me a great escape while increasing my common knowledge. It also made me interested in languages and writing. I wrote my very first poem the day John F Kennedy was shot.
