It was a pretty special day in Fremantle today with the Governor-General His Excellency the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove and Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove are visiting our port city.
Their visit focused on empowering youth, inclusiveness and support for marginalised sectors and Indigenous education, enterprise and opportunity.
They visited St Pats and helped serve lunch to clients there before also going visit the Freo Street Doctor, the Warawee Women’s refuge and the Wesley Centre range of services including Headspace.
At the end of the day the City of Fremantle hosted a civic reception with them to as well as also to publicly thank and acknowledge our very hard working local community leaders and volunteers. It was a rare opportunity to get everyone in one room and to share ideas.
It was really great to have them in town and share their passion for community development and services. Here are a few snaps.
