Congratulations to our winners of Citizens of the Year for Fremantle

It has been a crazy week but I wanted to belatedly congratulate our winners of Citizens of the Year for Fremantle in the Australia Day Premier’s Awards.

Fremantle Society President and well known blogger and photographer Roel Loopers was awarded Active Citizen of the Year. Well done and very well deserved.

Congratulations also to Plastic Free Freo for winning Community Group of the year the week Fremantle Council became the first local government to ban single-use plastic bags – an outcome started with their lobbying and support.

Finally Acacia Armstrong from Fair Trade Freo was awarded the Young Australian Award for her work in promoting fair trade.

These are the people that make Fremantle the special and wonderful place it is so I huge thanks to them for their effort over the past year.
