Message from Simone McGurk MLA, Member for Fremantle:

Sports clubs are a huge part of our Fremantle community.

If you’re a sports club with a project between $7,500 and $200,000, such as a storage upgrade or new practice wickets 🏏, be sure to lodge your application for the latest round of CSRFF small grants!

Applications are now open until the end of the month, and can be lodged at your local government.

To find out more information or to apply, visit https://www.dsr.wa.gov.au/f…/facilities-(csrff)/small-grants or contact my Fremantle office on 9336 7000.

FREMANTLE FORUM ON SAFER VENUES FOR WOMEN

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle network, hospitality, Uncategorized, women by freoview on January 27, 2018

 

The Fremantle Network presents a forum on respect and safety for women in our community and at events at 6pm on Monday 29 January, upstairs at the National Hotel, Fremantle.

Safer Venues WA is a newly established advocacy group that aims to improve standards of inclusivity and safety in Perth’s music and entertainment spaces.

They are doing this by:
• identifying harmful behaviours such as harassment, discrimination and assault as barriers to safety and inclusion,
• working with venues, audience, artists and industry to initiate a collective responsibility for change,
• using communication and research as tools to develop resources and frameworks for tangible change.

Research by Safer Venues WA found that over 67% of punters have experienced harassment (primarily experienced by women).

Perpetuation of discrimination against women based on their choice of dress, their state of intoxication or other forms of victim blaming continues in our community.

The Women’s Council for Domestic and Family Violence Services is a state-wide peak organisation committed to improving the status of women and children in society. Their work includes the transformative school-based “Promoting Respect Project”.

Kate Davis has worked in the community legal sector for over 15 years, including 5 years as Managing Solicitor of the Women’s Law Centre. Her career reflects her personal commitment to women’s rights and supporting disadvantaged women facing violence or homelessness.

Featuring:
Rebecca Sneddon and Will MacDonald, Safer Venues WA
Angela Hartwig, Women’s Council of WA
Kate Davis, community sector lawyer and local feminist

Whether you’re a man or a woman, a party goer, a venue operator or a by stander, you can make a difference in promoting respect and safety.

VALENTINE WITH ZYDECATS AT FREMANTLE WORKERS CLUB

Posted in fremantle, music by freoview on February 10, 2016

Fremantle’s very popular ZYDECATS band will perform at the Workers Club at the South Fremantle Football Club this Sunday, Valentine’s Day. They will be playing from 6-9 pm but there is day-time entertainment as well by Inside Cover.

Tickets to attend both events are only $ 5.00 for members and $ 10.00 for guests so a bargain. And it is a community fundraiser, so your money will support others.

The bar will be open and burgers for sale from 5 pm, so support our local clubs and take your loved one to the Freo oval.

STATE GOVERNMENT SNUBS FREMANTLE CLUBS

Posted in CLUBS, fremantle, sport, western australia by freoview on April 21, 2015

It is very disappointing that the W.A. State Government has yet again let down the Fremantle community, with the Department of Sport and Recreation not supporting the grant application that would have seen a new club house built at Parry Street for the Fremantle Workers, Tennis and Bowling clubs. The proposal also included an essential car park on the site to cater for users of the tennis and bowling facilities, club bar and restaurant, and that would also have catered for visitors to the Basilica, Clancy’s, Christian Brothers School, St Patrick’s Community group, etc.

The idea was that the COF would invest $ 1.3 million, the three clubs a similar amount, and that the State would cover the other $ 1.3 needed to make the development viable.

The proposal is now some $ 1.3 million short and it has to be seen if the City of Fremantle believes that income from the proposed carpark would be able to cover the shortfall.

It looks like State Government spent most of the available grant money on country sporting clubs but did not see the benefit a clubhouse sharing of the three Freo clubs would bring.

FRINGE FESTIVAL FOR FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle by freoview on September 16, 2014

The highly popular Perth FRINGEWORLD wants to come to Fremantle as well next year for a month and is applying for cash sponsorship support from the City of Fremantle to the amount of $ 35,000 plus $ 5,000 in waived fees for the hire of Victoria Hall.

Fringeworld Freo would be in several venues, such as Sail&Anchor, Clancy’s, Mojo’s, PS Art Studios, Victoria Hall, and they are negotiating with the Navy Club and Many 6162.

There would also be a ‘Fringe in Freo Hub’ at Kings Square with a pop up bar for four days.

The event would run from January 23 to February 22 with the estimated number of acts between 50-100 and each venues having 2-3 shows per night.

Organisors Vulture Culture estimate that the ticket sales would be 3,000 per week for a period of four weeks.

Sounds all pretty interesting, so let’s see what the City of Fremantle’s Strategic Planning and Services Committee decides tomorrow evening.

FREMANTLE CLUBS TEAM UP FOR THE FUTURE

Posted in city of fremantle by freoview on August 21, 2014

The concept plan for the Fremantle Park Club amalgamation of the Fremantle Lawn Tennis, Fremantle Bowling, and Fremantle Workers clubs was on the agenda at Wednesday’s City of Fremantle Strategic Planning and Services Committee, which was tightly and professionally chaired by Councillor Dave Coggin.

The “clearly defined project” could become a model for other clubs in the area and is considered major infrastructure in the inner city, with the possibility of also building a City carpark on the Parry Street site.

A merger of the clubs would be very good for the east of the inner city and would create much-needed recreational and sports facilities for new residents, like those of Heirloom by Match, moving into the area. It would sit well close to the Leisure Centre and only a two-minute walk from the future Hilton Hotel, so hotel guests could also benefit from the new clubhouse, that should include a gym.

I believe this would be an exciting development for the rather dull area along Ellen and Parry streets that could invigorate the clubs and that part of the city.

LET THERE BE MUSIC IN FREO

Posted in fremantle, music by freoview on July 26, 2014

The success of the Fremantle Hidden Treasures winter music festival and MosArts in Mosman Park shows that people are craving for more live music in our area. That makes me wonder why two great Freo venues are so underutilised. Victoria Hall and the Town Hall are beautiful venues that are unused most of the year during the evenings, so why not crank it up and encourage local musicians to take advantage of the spaces. I could see a nice weekly or monthly event happening where both halls are open and the organisers collaborate with the hospitality businesses just east of Kings Square to create package deals. What about, let’s say, a $ 30.00 ticket giving access to both venues and e.g. a pizza from Box Pizza, or a curry from Zab Salad, or a specialty from RAW Kitchen.

Hidden Treasures supported local musos and the struggling local clubs while MosArts attracted a lot of people and musicians from Fremantle. Of course Kulcha is now also available and could be reinstated as a live music venue, or community hall.

If we used our existing halls more for live music there would be no need to build another one at J Shed on Bathers Beach. It makes little sense to have empty halls while building a new one.

Put your thinking cap on, Freo and come up with some good ideas!

MUSIC WINTER FESTIVAL FOR FREO’S WEST END

Posted in fremantle by freoview on June 10, 2014

Here Comes The Sun

I am delighted to hear that the Fremantle HIDDEN TREASURES WINTER MUSIC FESTIVAL is returning to the West End of the city an I hope it will be as successful as the first one they held there, with local shops staying open and putting furniture out on the street and people having a drink around open fires. It was a very cool event and much appreciated by the very many people who attended the concerts.

Every Thursday in July from 7 pm there will be music at the Workers Club, The Navy Club, the Buffalo Club and PS Art Studios, and it will only cost $ 10.00 for a ticket that will allow entry to all the four venues on the night. That is dirt cheap, especially with the bar prices also below pub prices. So make Thursday night your traditional Friday pub night in July.

Expect some outstanding highlights during July when the super group Midfield Legends plays, or go and listen to Gutterville Splendour Six, or attend Jam Notion by Catch Music.
