SAD FREMANTLE REMINDER OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Posted in Uncategorized, city of fremantle, violence, women, family by freoview on December 11, 2017

 

 

There is a very important reminder in front of the Fremantle Shipwrecks Museum about the unacceptable high numbers of domestic violence in Australia, so go and check it out and spread the word through social media!

Although just about everyone should understand that domestic violence, mainly against women, is not acceptable, the statistics show the numbers have actually increased in Australia in recent years. We need to put a stop to that!

50,000 incidents of family and domestic violence were reported last year in WA. That is outrageous!

If you observe domestic violence report it, because the victims are often too frightened to do it themselves.

It is going to be a warm 33 degrees in Fremantle today, so while many will be watching that horse race that stops the nation, Loopy and the more refined ones(smiley!) will stay at home and read a good book.

If you haven’t discovered the Paper Bird children’s bookshop in Henry Street, Fremantle, take your kids there on the weekend!

Stage One of the City of Fremantle Cantonment Hill project, the children’s playground, has been completed and will be officially opened by Mayor Brad Pettitt at 4 pm today.

But parents and children could not wait for the opening and were already using the equipment this morning.

The views to Fremantle Port are great, there is a BBQ and a lawn to kick the footy, so go and check it out soon. It’s going to be over 30 degrees tomorrow, so a perfect day for it.

free kids food

 

It is always a challenge for parents to keep the kids happy and occupied during school holidays and it can be costly too, so take advantage of the KIDS EAT FREE offer at the Fremantle National Hotel.

Every weekend a child can eat for free as long as an adult orders a main course.

Support our local Freo traders. They need our help!

Stage one of the Cantonment Hill Project is nearly finished, with workers doing the final landscaping.

The City of Fremantle will officially open the playground Thursday week, October 12, so make sure to take your children there in ten days.

It looks pretty good and I assume some shade structures and seating will be added to finish it all.

KIDS’ IDEAS FOR KINGS SQUARE PLAYGROUND

Posted in children, city of fremantle, kings square, Uncategorized by freoview on September 23, 2017

 

The weather at the start of school holidays and the long weekend is not great, so maybe Fremantle parents can have a creative and productive session with their children on what kind of playground they would like to see at Kings Square, as part of the new retail development and Civic Centre.

The City of Fremantle is asking kids–and their mums and dads– what they would like to be included in the new outdoor play space at Kings Square.

The ideas of 170 local students have included musical stepping stones, a tree-top dance floor, giant flying foxes, a crystal cave, mushroom swings, giant fidget spinners and surprise pools that spray water ‘every now and then’.

These and more ideas are now on display at the Fremantle Library until October 24.

Other thoughts and suggestions can be shared on the City of Fremantle’s My Say Freo online portal.
