The City is again proud to spon­sor the Joon­dalup Christ­mas Lunch in 2018, to be held on Tues­day 25 De­cem­ber at Cen­tral Park, Joon­dalup. This free an­nual event for peo­ple who would oth­er­wise spend Christ­mas Day alone has grown to be­come one of the big­gest of its kind in Perth. Or­gan­ised by lo­cal church groups and vol­un­teers, about 500 guests – from a va­ri­ety of back­grounds in­clud­ing the home­less, new ar­rivals in Aus­tralia, peo­ple with fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties, those who have lost their part­ners and those with­out fam­i­lies – will come to­gether for a tra­di­tional Christ­mas meal, live en­ter­tain­ment and Christ­mas Car­ols. Guest reg­is­tra­tions and more in­for­ma­tion at joon­dalupchrist­ or on 0466 252 076.

Three for shade

Shade sails will be in­stalled at three of the City’s play­grounds later this month at Burns Beach Park (Burns Beach), Tom Simp­son Park – South (Mul­laloo) and De­lamere Park (Cur­ram­bine). The in­stal­la­tion of sail struc­tures at three very pop­u­lar and highly utilised play­grounds is a win for the lo­cal com­mu­nity, re­sult­ing in greater op­por­tu­ni­ties to utilise the fa­cil­i­ties, par­tic­u­larly in sum­mer months. While nat­u­ral shad­ing will al­ways be prefer­able given the high costs of in­stalling and main­tain­ing ar­ti­fi­cial shade, there are some cir­cum­stances where this is not a prac­ti­cal so­lu­tion and ex­plor­ing the op­tion of sail struc­tures is re­quired. The three play­grounds will be un­avail­able for use dur­ing the con­struc­tion pe­riod and the pub­lic will be in­formed via on­site sig­nage.
