The summer edition of the quarterly City of Fremantle FRE-OH! magazine is out and a great read. It will be delivered to your letterbox but is also available on-line on Facebook and the City’s website.

The cover is of the delightful milliner Kate Hulett, well known from her Kate and Abel hat shop at Many 2.0 and from her involvement with Spacemarket.

There is also a good story about Gerard O’Brien and Silverleaf Investments, and the brilliant restoration work they are doing at the historic Manning building, a story about new businesses, one about book clubs, a spread about North Fremantle, another one about lifesaving, etc. There is even a short story about this Loopy blogger in it.

FRE-OH! is a good way to stay connected with our community and to find out all about the latest news in the port city.

The City of Fremantle has released a light-hearted new video as part of its campaign to encourage more people to do their Christmas shopping in Fremantle, WA’s best open air shopping centre.

Directed by Fremantle-based photographer, film-maker and Australian Survivor contestant Jarrad Seng, the video stars local musician Timothy Nelson performing a Freo version of the classic carol The Twelve Days of Christmas while riding on the ferris wheel at the Esplanade Park.

It was shot at iconic Fremantle locations like the West End, Cappuccino Strip, Fremantle Markets and Bathers Beach and features products and styling from local designers, retail stores and boutiques.

“Our team had a lot of fun devising each mini-scene in a way that promoted great Fremantle stores, experiences and locations – as well as providing just that little pop of unexpected delight, which is also very Freo.

“In total over 70 locals volunteered their time to be a part of this and show their love for Fremantle and our entire film crew was sourced locally, which is a testament to the creative talent in town.

“Let me tell you, directing 11 nonnos in Gino’s to stay in one place and sip coffee in unison is no easy feat.”

The release of the video coincides with the launch of the City’s #shopfreo Christmas shopping competition.

Just spend $20 in any participating store and ask for your unique code, then go online to enter the codeword for your chance to win $500 to spend in the store.

Two winners will be drawn every Monday from 25 November through to 23 December.

To make shopping in Freo easier this Christmas the City of Fremantle is also offering up to two hours free parking at all of its off-street car parks.

Running from 1 December until Boxing Day, the free parking offer will be available Monday to Thursday from 9am-4pm via the City of Fremantle’s PayStay mobile parking app.

The PayStay app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or by visiting the PayStay website.

In addition to the free parking offer through PayStay, Free Parking Santa will also return to the streets of Fremantle this year offering to pay for shoppers parking at variety of car park ticket machines across the City.

Shoppers are urged to keep an eye on City of Fremantle social media for Free Parking Santa locations.

LIV IN THE PAST ADVERTISEMENT

LIV

 

A full-page advertisement for the LIV apartments in today’s Fremantle Herald shows how important it is to have local knowledge when one starts marketing.

It is no doubt my ignorance that I have never heard of Space real estate, but a Google search shows they are in Cottesloe. That must be the reason then that they use a very old photo of the Little Market Street Piazza, where Sandrino left well over a year ago, and Kailis Fish Cafe in the Fishing Boat Harbour also had a coat of paint since the published photo was taken.

Love Summer Living in Freo the ad shouts. Yes, we do, but we don’t live in the past Space. A little care for detail goes a long way when one advertises.

If you are interested in buying an apartment at Queen Victoria or Quarry Street: 1 Bedroom $ 380K, 2 Bedroom 455K, 3 Bedroom 950K. http://www.livapartments.com.au

It took an eternity but there is finally a prominent sign pointing to Fremantle’s inner city Bathers Beach. A nice big banner in Market Street near the High Street mall.

Well done City of Fremantle!

That bloody lefty greeny Fremantle Council is at it again! First they ban Australia Day, then plastic bags and balloons, and now to top it all they are banning the Queen of England and are working toward becoming the Republic of Fremantle, as this banner at the Fremantle traffic bridge this morning shows.

Don’t despair yet! It is a promo for the new Republic of Fremantle gin distillery and micro brewery that will open in Pakenham Street very soon. ; >)
