PUBLIC ART LOST FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS By Roel Loopers August 20, 2018. The initiative by the City of Fremantle and other local councils to introduce a percentage for the arts scheme has been good for WA artists and the public, but it comes with the risk that the lifespan of some of the artworks will be […]
One makes enemies for life when one ignores the North Fremantle community, so I’d better give a plug for the catering at the North Freo Primary School at Saturday’s FEDERAL BI-ELECTION DAY, after I did the same for the Freo Primary School.

The Freospace blogs for Ficra and Gibson Park have gone offline. The former I guess because they’ve merged with the Fremantle Society, and maybe the latter is just not active at all?

I thought I’d better phrase the title of this post in the negative, seeing as the blasted thing has been more often offline over the last couple of months than it has been online. Even when it’s been online it’s not been working properly. Hurrumph. Anyway, perhaps now at last we’re on the road to […]
