The sounds of a local jazz band, The Limelights, and the aroma of a delicious spit roast complemented by beer generously donated by Fremantle’s Gage Roads set the scene for a fun community barbeque on January 18, 2013.
Hosted by The University of Notre Dame Australia’s Fremantle Campus as part of the University’s Four Days in Summer event series, the free barbeque was held in the university’s beautiful Malloy Courtyard on High Street, Fremantle.
Attracting both young and old, guests included the State Member for Fremantle, Adele Carles; members of the Fremantle Inner City Residents Association; President of the Fremantle Society, Roel Loopers, and Platoon C from Fremantle Fire Brigade.
Chief Executive Officer of the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce, Tim Milsom, commended the evening’s success.
“There was an amazing ambience in the Malloy Courtyard and true community spirit amongst the crowd,” said Mr Milsom.
Pro-Vice Chancellor, Fremantle, Associate Professor Mark Tannock, said the university was delighted with the response to the event.
“It was a wonderful opportunity for our staff and students to share some hospitality with our neighbours and members of the broader Fremantle community,” he said.
