Beeliar ready to celebrate
The suburb of Beeliar is turning 25 and everyone is invited to celebrate at a big community birthday party next week.
BEELIAR is turning 25 years old and the whole community is invited to celebrate.
Carved out of what had been the southern portion of Yangebup, Beeliar was named after Beeliar Boodjar, the Indigenous name for the City of Cockburn and the land of the Beeliar Nyungar.
Beeliar Community Voice will celebrate the suburb’s 25th anniversary with a party, featuring face painters, inflatables, photobooth, food trucks, children’s activities and entertainment from Circus WA and the Bindjareb Middars Dancers.
Beeliar Community Voice president Wendy Campbell said they also had the Beeliar Community Centre mural repainted by artist Jack Brommell and it would be unveiled at the start of the event.
“The BCV team see the 25th birthday of Beeliar as an exciting opportunity to bring the community together to celebrate the growth of the area, the diversity of all those who reside in Beeliar and to engage with neighbours as we get together and celebrate our connections,” she said.
“The party is a free event for residents to celebrate their community.”
The event is sponsored through the Alcoa Cockburn Community Fund.
Alcoa Kwinana community relations officer Scott Hansen said they were pleased to help community organisations.
The Beeliar Big Birthday Bash will be held at Beeliar Reserve from 5pm to 8pm on October 26.
William Campbell (12) and Joel Bruce (10) celebrate with Beeliar locals.
