Spring finally arrived in Mosman Park, just in time for an intrepid tribe of orange clad adventurers to race around Mosman Park competing in the Town’s 7th annual STOMP! event on Sunday 8 September 2019.
The Town of Mosman Park, with the Mosman Park Youth Advisory Council hosted STOMP! on Sunday 8 September, in which youngsters aged between 10 and 18 years raced between checkpoints; participating in challenges hosted by the Town’s various community and sporting groups.
One of the main objectives of the award-winning and ever-popular event is to introduce the Town’s youngsters to the wide array of community and sporting activities available to them. This year we welcomed Mosman Park Golf Club, Mosman Refresh by ADC and Western Electric Sporting Association all running checkpoint challenges for the first time.
The teams completed the seventeen checkpoints across a route that covered 10 kilometres around Mosman Park, meandering through some of the Town’s most scenic locations. Finding Dory which consisted of Alec Prendiville, Benji Barnes, Ned Fletcher and Rory Fleming took line honours in a time of 1 hours and 59 minutes, leaving competitors in their wake.
At the end of the race, the adventurers gathered at Memorial Park for a well-earned rest in the shade and enjoyed a picnic provided by the Town; chatting, laughing and recounting their favourite moments. Mosman Park Youth Advisory Council (MPYAC) member and Chairperson of the STOMP! Subcommittee, Tate Fairbanks, presented the winning teams with their trophy and congratulated all participants on their efforts.
Mayor Pollock made an additional presentation to Mosman Park Youth Advisory Council members and volunteers, thanking them for their hard work in planning, coordinating and delivering a well-run and highly enjoyable event.
The Town is grateful to the many local community groups who participated in the event by running checkpoints on the day; including the Mosman Park Tennis Club, Mosman Park Golf Club, Western Metropolitan Resource Centre, Rotary Club of Mosman Park-Cottesloe, Mosman Park Community Men’s Shed, Western Electric Sporting Association, Mosman Refresh – ADC, Mosman Bay Sea Scouts, Mosman Park Netball Club, The Grove library, Bakers Delight, St Luke’s Anglican Church, Western Knights Soccer Club, Swan Canoe Club and Mosman Park Bowling Club. STOMP! would not be possible without their support.
The Mosman Craft Market is organised by the Mosman Park Men's Shed annually each November as a major fund raising event and also to encourage community involvement in their activities.
The Market is held in the Shed (1 Perrott Close) and on the adjacent Tom Perrott Oval and can be reached by private vehicle (plenty of parking), bicycle, train (20 mins walk) and bus (5 mins walk).
The Market has evolved over the years to becoming a major component of Mosman Park community activity and now includes the “Antiques Re-Discovered” plus a variety of food outlets and entertainment, including a special Children’s activity partially provided by "Rosie O".
Invited Stall Holders are limited to those that create their products in Western Australia thus providing a local flavour to the occasion. We also invite local community groups to set up a stall in the Market area as an opportunity to broaden their exposure. The event includes not only Craft stalls, etc., but also features tours of the amazing Men's Shed, the largest in WA!
Potential stall holders (craft makers) who would like to participate (sent mid year) should send an email to email@example.com and advise of their full business name, contact and product details. They do not accept registrations from local representatives of national and international companies, nor from anyone selling bric-a-brac.
The 2019 Market will be held on Sunday 10th November ~ we look forward to seeing you there!
To keep the ever-popular Mosman Park Community Fair fresh and inviting, and as a way to build capacity in its community groups, the Town of Mosman Park is exploring a new partnership with the local Men’s Shed to deliver an expanded version of the Fair in November 2020.
The Town has sharpened its focus on delivering on key objectives in community development, including promoting social interaction and connectedness, empowering local residents to create opportunities, supporting the viability of community and sporting groups and the promotion and support of local business and it is hoped that proposals for the revamped event – along with other new measures – will achieve just that.
“Rather than hosting the usual Community Fair in March at Mann Oval, we are considering holding a bigger and better event at Tom Perrott Reserve in November 2020 that will be the Mosman Craft Market and Community Fair for all ages,” Mayor Pollock advised. He further said that the Town would allocate some of the money it will save by combining the events to drive the greatest value for money and create opportunities in different parts of the Town.
“Instead of all of our eggs in one basket”, he said “we are hoping to do more in different areas of the Town, including the possibility of expanding our Council grants system to support groups and initiatives that are led by the community.”
As part of the Let’s Revitalise Mosman Park Town Centre initiative, the Town will also discuss partnering with traders in the Glyde Street precinct and other commercial zones on various ideas to increase vibrancy in these areas, Mayor Pollock advised.
He explained that this was all about empowering residents to develop their own ideas and run their own events and projects, to drive innovation. By sharing this funding across a range of initiatives, we are looking at deriving the greatest possible value, rather than investing all of it in one event.
