Water Leak/Road Hazard Lochee St/Bay View Tce

Residents who live close to or who have travelled through the corner of Lochee Street and Bay View Tce will be aware of a water leak that occurred last night that is affecting the road surface.

A burst water pipe has caused hazardous damage at the entrance to the Mosman Park Bowling Club and secondary damage to Bay View Terrace (southbound) adjacent to the Bowling Club (near the intersection of Lochee Street).

The Town has engaged contractors to fix the pipe (as a first priority) and will then make necessary repairs to the road asphalt.  The expected finish date for all works is expected to be no later than Friday 31 March 2017.

While these urgent works are being undertaken, detour signs are in place to redirect traffic away from that area.

Residents and visitors are requested to observe those signs and avoid the area if possible until the works are complete.

We thank you for your patience as we work to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.

Neighbours Day Celebrated at Community Fair

Mosman Park residents found it was easy and fun to celebrate Neighbour Day when hundreds descended upon Mann Oval to for what is arguably the highlight of the Town’s social calendar – the free Community Fair.

Concerns about the weather forecast were put aside when early showers gave way to a temperate autumn afternoon, and visitors of all ages thoroughly enjoyed the wide array of activities on offer.  The Town’s many community and sporting groups showcased the impressive leisure, social and recreational opportunities available in Mosman Park, including golf, soccer, netball, AFL, Scouts; as well as groups for seniors and young people, local schools, and the natural environment, to name just a few.  

Mayor of Mosman Park, Ron Norris, and other Councillors, as well as members of staff, were seen chatting to residents, giving out information and answering questions on a diverse range of subjects.  Mayor Norris described this year’s event as “the most successful ever”, and said how impressed he was with the high level of participation and excitement, particularly by the children. “There was a sense of happiness in the air, and the inclusion of the wide range of sporting clubs was particularly successful.” Town of Mosman Park Chief Executive Officer, Mark Goodlet, attending for the first time in his new role was seen happily chatting to residents and taking their suggestions.  

The highly popular Pimped out Pushys competition was held again this year, encouraging residents to decorate their push bikes and ride them to the Fair, where prizes were awarded.  The Town’s youngsters were enthusiastic patrons of various rides and games on the day, including the return of the very popular climbing wall, bucking bull and other attractions.  As evening approached, it was time for the explosion of colour, music, creativity and recycling that is Junkadelic, who took to take the stage with funky sounds that got the crowd moving. Their creative approach to making not just music but also the instruments themselves (from recycled materials) inspired many who created their own shakers and needed little persuading to join the band as they performed at the end of the Fair.

The Community Fair is made possible through the support of LotteryWest, and is held on Neighbour Day, a day which encourages not just residents of Mosman Park but those everywhere to get to know their neighbours to enhance safety and security as well as building friendships.
