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.

Applications for the W.A. Contemporary Music Fund Grants will open this month, helping musicians from across the State to make and promote their music and do what they love.

Music is an integral part of our Fremantle community and the grants will hopefully help create more opportunities for artists in WA.

CONSERVATION OF HERITAGE GRANTS AVAILABLE

Posted in fremantle by freoview on September 15, 2012

I hope the City of Fremantle Heritage Department will take note of this and apply for a grant to paint the Town Hall  and reinstall the verandas.

LOTTERYWEST is giving Conservation of Cultural Heritage Grants to not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities for conservation work on places or objects of significant heritage value.

Besides the Town Hall we could do with some serious conservation work at Arthur Head where the old pilot cottages are run down, the J Shed looks a mess and the whole area needs a good clean up, paint job, new fences, walls, etc.

Of course there are also the Warders Cottages in Henderson Street that need urgent attention, as do the Married Quarters cottages at Cantonment Hill.

Fore more information go to: www.lotterywest.wa.gov.au/grants

FREMANTLE DECKCHAIR DOWN

Posted in fremantle, perth, western australia by freoview on July 17, 2010

I do not agree with Fremantle MP Adele Carles and Mayor Brad Pettitt to bail out Deckchair theatre yet again.

The reason why Deckchair does not attract large audiences, despite generous funding, is because they regularly perform average to bad plays. They can employ the best marketing agency in the world to promote them, but if they don’t come up with the goods people will stay away. The last play I went to was so bad that I went home in the interval. Together with arts minister John Day there were not even 40 people at that performance.

It is beyond belief that Deckchair needs to hire lighting, chairs and curtains for every performance at a cost of $ 25,000.00. That means they need some 800 paying people to come and watch just to cover those costs. That is bad and irresponsible business management and should have been addressed long ago.

Unfunded groups like the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra consistently fill the town hall because they perform excellent concerts. Spare Parts theatre has no problems getting people in either, so why should the state government give more money to Deckchair to support their under-performing? There is no incentive to be good or profitable when tax payers money is always at the ready. That is typical grants mentality. Mediocrity does not deserve to be rescued.
