FREMANTLE CITY SPONSORS FREO STREET DOCTOR

 

 

The FPOL-Finance, Policy and Legislation- Committee  of Fremantle Council unanimously agreed on Wednesday evening to sponsor the Fremantle Street Doctor services for $ 20,000 and will also write to the State Government to seek reconsideration for ongoing funding, since the Health Department slashed all funding for this great initiative by the end of this financial year.

Councillors also agreed to lobby the members for Fremantle Simone McGurk MLA and Josh Wilson MP.

The Fremantle Foundation’s Impact 1000 could be perfect to sponsor the Freo Street Doctor, I believe.

The Mayor and Councillor Rachel Pemberton said that if the City sponsors these important social services it should make the community aware of it through a logo or something.

Your ratepayers’ money at work with the council logo would be great!

CUSTOMS HOUSE FOR SALE

Customs House

The beautiful Fremantle Customs House on the corner of Phillimore and Henry streets is for sale, so who knows this could be another opportunity to adapt the building into residential or a hotel.

The Customs, Centrelink and Health Departments do have short-term leases in the building, so let’s see what the future brings.

The down grading of Fremantle Hospital will see a large number of staff move to the new Fiona Stanley Hospital in Murdoch, so Freo needs to make up for the loss of people somehow, as that will affect the economy and livelihood of cafes in the area.

MUSIC TO OPEN YOUR MIND

Posted in fremantle by freoview on March 25, 2012

The Music To Open Your Mind festival was held at Fremantle‘s Kings Square today to raise awareness for mental health. It is really important that mental health issues are being discussed in the open and are no longer seen as something to be ashamed off and hide. Youth and male suicide have been increasing and that needs to be stopped!
