TAKE DAD TO THE GROWERS GREEN MARKET!

Posted in family, fathers day, fremantle, growers green markets, western australia by freoview on September 2, 2016

Come on Fremantle kids and mums, take DAD to a special place this Sunday and visit the Growers Green Farmers Market at Lefroy Road.

It is the monthly BIG MARKET with lots of stalls to buy DAD a present and lots of food stalls to buy him yummie breakfast and coffee. And you don’t have to clean up afterward yourselves. ; >)

There is live music, and DAD could have a face painting or cuddle up with sheep at Damian’s Farm. The Growers Green is a lot of fun, so make is a very special day for DAD!

Always remember that Freo is all about your special DAD:

Fun

Respectful

Extraordinary

Original

HAVE FUN IN THE WINTER FESTIVAL BUBBLE

Posted in children, family, fremantle, western autralia, winter festival by freoview on July 4, 2016

winter bubble

This long bubble tube at the Fremantle Winter Festival at the Esplanade is very popular with children who run and roll around inside it.

It looks like a whole lot of fun, so can we have a senior night in them as well? Only kidding!

If you haven’t been there, go and check it out. There is ice skating and a huge slide, toboggan, food and drinks and even hot chestnuts and ‘real’ snow.

SNOW IN FREMANTLE

Posted in festival, fremantle, skating, western australia, winter by freoview on June 24, 2016

 

Snow is falling in Fremantle at the Winter Festival at the Esplanade and kids and grown ups love it. The ice rink is a lot of fun and there is also a slide on real ice.

Hot chocolate, mulled wine, slow cooked beef and pork and the National Hotel bar open will make for a fund day and night out.

PHOTOS OF FREMANTLE’S WA DAY

Posted in community, fremantle, wa day, western autralia by freoview on June 6, 2016

 

The WA Day event at the Fremantle Esplanade was a little underwhelming as it was mainly for children, but it was still nice to see how multicultural our Australian society is.

How great to know that we live in such a peaceful country in relative harmony with all cultures, religions and skin colours.

There are still too many racists to my liking, and those who mistakingly believe they defend our nation’s values by being intolerant to other cultures.

It is good to reflect sometimes on how privileged we are living in such a stunning part of the world with so many fascinating people in our community.

HAVE YOU SEEN CHILD ABUSER?

If you think you know this man or someone who looks like him please do call Crimestoppers immediately!

Two little kids were assaulted in North Perth yesterday by a man who looks like this, so he needs to be taken off the streets so children can play without fear.

Please pass this through your networks as widely as you can. Kids are sacred and no one should harm them ever!

PAPER BIRD BOOKS CREATE SAND FUN FOR KIDS

It does not come more Freo than this! What a lovely scene this afternoon at the new Paper Bird children’s book shop in Henry Street where a small part of the street had been turned into a sandpit for kids to be creative in.

The book shop commissioned Tim Darby and Shani Graham of Ecoburbia fame to create some sand sculptures and Tim did not forget to put the bird logo of the shop on the bottom right of his artwork. He told me he would also include a book or two.

Great to see a popular event that did not require booze or noise. Loved it!

ESPLANADE A COMMUNITY SPACE FOR CONTEMPLATION

Posted in family, fremantle, photography by freoview on April 20, 2016

school holidays at EYP

 

In a world that is in a mad rush to do everything fast, the quiet enjoyment of an inner city park is invaluable, as this photo taken this morning at the Fremantle Esplanade shows.

What the area does not need is more entertainment and another cafe. It is a great spot for families to meet for picnic, kick the footy, or just sit back and read a book.

When we engage in constant internet communication we need spaces for contemplation and relaxation where we are not bombarded with noise.
