Beel­iar ready to cel­e­brate

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
