‘Early set­tlers’ hon­oured with morn­ing tea

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park ac­knowl­edged its old­est res­i­dents late last month with a morn­ing tea for those who have lived long­est in the community.

Af­fec­tion­ately known as the early set­tlers, th­ese res­i­dents have lived con­tin­u­ously in the Town’s sub­urbs for 50 years or more and cur­rently live in the area.

This was the fourth time the Town has hosted an early set­tlers event.

The num­ber of at­ten­dees has grown steadily over the years – from 71 at first in 2010 to 160 this year.

“Th­ese are peo­ple who have seen the Town grow and change im­mensely over the years that they have lived here,” Mayor Trevor Vaughan said.

“They have been the peo­ple who have shaped and trans­formed our community into the friendly, vi­brant place it is to­day and I am hon­oured that we can take the time to recog­nise the valu­able con­tri­bu­tion that our long­est res­i­dents have made, and con­tinue to make to the community.”
