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.
They are launching the new courtyard and joining with the rest of the Moores Building to create an open arts precinct.
Art studios will be open, including the Moores Gallery Studios Resident Artists, and free kids activities: 9am Wild Movement Perth will run a nature play session, 9.30am Story Time, 10am Inkling Art Space open workshop + Great food & coffee from Moore & Moore Cafe. See you there!
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.
Come on kids, take your parents and grand parents out for kind of treasure hunt around Fremantle and win some great prizes
It is on from January 14-29 and you can spread it over 2-3 days if you can’t get it all done in one day.
The Fremantle Moore&Moore cafe in Henry Street is holding a Kids Nature Play event from tomorrow December 21 to January 20.
There will be a nature play area, market stalls, children’s entertainment, games, craft and more and it’s FREE, so take the kids for some hours of fun in the beautiful heritage building.
The coffee and food at M&M is very good and the staff delightful! They are my mates.
The City of Fremantle Christmas Carols, the first one at South Beach, was very popular on Sunday night with thousands of people enjoying the family atmosphere, music and sunset.
The sea breeze was very strong and had a real chill in it so many people cuddled up under blankets to try to stay warm, but it was a very nice event with food stalls catering for the hungry.
A reminder for mums, dads and grandparents that this Sunday December 18 the Fremantle Christmas Carols are on at South Beach from 7 pm, so it will be great to get a stunning sunset while cuddling up with the kids and enjoying the community.
There will be food stalls from 6pm, so no need to bring your own if you feel a bit lazy on the day.
I’m dreaming of a white beach Christmas!
Domestic violence against women dramatically increased in Australia this year and that is unacceptable, so everyone needs to be aware of it and help change this around.
There are absolutely no excuses for men to assault women. It does not matter if you are drunk, drugged or just in a bad mood, women deserve respect and have the right to feel safe at home.
This Friday is WHITE RIBBON DAY where we are reminded of the senseless violence against women, the mothers of our children, our sisters, aunties, friends and as a community we need to speak out and help protect those who get beaten up. The silence around domestic violence has to stop!
Beating up a woman is not a silly mistake that one regrets the next day but it is a violent crime for which there are no excuses whatsoever and ever!
Come to Kings Square on Friday November 25 between 8-12 am, where there will be guest speakers, live entertainment, free legal advise and stalls.
Show solidarity with women who get abused by their partners. It needs to stop NOW!
Fremantle BID is offering great free school holiday activity that will engage the whole family and does not have to cost an arm and a leg while exploring our great city. The kids and (grand)parents won’t even realise they are exercising and that this fun day is good for their health!
The FREO TREASURE HUNT map will sent you all over Freo to businesses, historic places, etc. to collect ‘gold coins’ which are displayed in windows. There is even one in a cell at the Roundhouse kids!
There is also free activity at Kings Square and maps can be collected at local businesses, the City of Fremantle, etc. or contact BID on 9430 6504.
