Mayor's Christmas Message

During this busy and productive year, Council has been working to secure the Town’s financial future by creating new partnerships with our community groups and neighbouring Councils. 

Our parks, reserves and beach are well maintained, hosting a diverse range of leisure pursuits.

Council is improving and planning for the future of our community facilities for the enjoyment of residents of all ages, and their wide-ranging recreational, sporting and cultural interests. 

Recently I was delighted and privileged to reward promising young people in our Town with youth encouragement grants as well as recognising the more than ten years of service of community volunteers.  

For 2019, we have ambitious plans to deliver exciting opportunities to ensure that Mosman Park continues to be Perth’s most desirable place in which to live, Between River and Sea. 

May you have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, and I look forward to a vibrant and successful year in 2019.

Mayor Brett Pollock

Bird's Eye View of Mosman Park now on display

The Mayor of Mosman Park, with some special guests, launched the Town of Mosman Park's Community Calendar on Tuesday 4 December 2018, sharing images captured by drone photographers that show the Town from a new perspective.

More than 90 entries in all were received, with some by professional photographers, but most from enthusiastic amateurs with an interest in drone photography.  There were enough high quality entries to produce the calendar many times over.

The 13 feature shots (including the stunning cover shot) were chosen because they were high quality images that reflected the Town according to the brief ‘From a Bird’s Eye View’ reflecting the diversity of locations within the Town – beach, river, parks and reserves as well as key community assets – Memorial Park, the Mosman Park Bowling Club and the Mosman Park Golf Club and Swan Canoe Club to name a few.  There was also a mixture of man-made assets, such as the geometrical shapes captured at Mt Lyell Park, and stunning shots of the natural landscapes of the Swan River and Mosman Bay.

Mayor of Mosman Park, Brett Pollock, thanked all of the photographers for their time and skill and for donating their images for publication in the Calendar, which are also on display at The Grove Library, beginning Tuesday 4 December, for ten days.

Photographers: Nick Rafferty (cover shot and Mosman Bay Canoe Club), Adam Broadhurst (Jabe Dodd Park, Minim Cove, Mosman Park Golf Course, Mosman Park Bowling Club, Mosman Park Council Building and Ocean to River), Justus Rehn (Australia Day), Jon Corpus (Chidley Point), Iggy Kwee (Mt Lyell Park), Cameron Ellis (Jetty), Andrew Burvill (Norfolk Pines in Memorial Park) and Mark Marcelino (Sunset over Mosman Bay).

Winning artist, Mr Rafferty, was asked if he would consider becoming a full-time photographer and he humbly replied that he had no such plans at this stage, although he shared that he had recently upgraded his drone and would continue to indulge his new found passion.

The youngest entrant was Tate Fairbanks, aged 13, who used the drone he purchased with funding he received from the Town of Mosman Park and the Mosman Park Youth Advisory Council’s Youth Encouragement Grant scheme.  Former dux of Mosman Park Primary School, and a resident of Wellington Street, Tate is a student at Perth Modern School and he used the drone to take a picture of the Mayor and Councillors that features on the Calendar’s inside cover.

At the launch, Member for Cottesloe, Dr David Honey MP, applauded the work of the photographers, whose work captured the Town as it is now from a beautiful new vantage point, and said the images provided a wonderful historical record of the Town that would be preserved for the future and were a great asset.

Given the popularity of the project and the strength of the entries, the Mayor is already considering the theme for 2020, with great interest in featuring the Town’s classic and vintage cars, (a topic close to the Mayor’s heart and an interest enjoyed by many in the Town) or the Town’s amazing birdlife.  Community input will be sought in choosing the theme for the next edition.

Calendars are available now for residents of Mosman Park for collection from the Town’s Administration Centre or from The Grove Library.
