We’re passionate about seeing Inglewood become an even more vibrant, active and attractive place. As well as our uber-successful Monday Night Markets, we’re hard at work make it a more pleasant experience to linger a little longer along our stretch of Beaufort Street.
Over the past few years, we’ve worked closely with others in our community to bring you more lighting, greenery, colour, culture, places to relax and chances to meet your neighbours and local businesses. All of this has come from our Place Activation Strategy which was formed following countless conversations and in-depth consultation with our local community and businesses.
From building and installing wooden seating units, commissioning murals designed or painted by locals, through to running progressive dinners, garden walks, history strolls, long-table dinners the seriously fun Festival in the ‘Wood and ginormous Mount Lawley Christmas Festival, we’re committed to making Inglewood the best place for fun things to do and lovely people to meet.
In 2018, we have plans to do bigger and better things, with plans underway to transform a couple of sections of our street in need of some TLC with more shade, lighting and greenery. We’re looking into ways to tackle crime and where best to start up a community garden.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t give a huge shout out to the City of Stirling’s officers, Councillors David Lagan and Bianca Sandri, State MPs Lisa Baker and Simon Millman, Federal MP Tim Hammond and Federal Senator Dean Smith for all their help and support over the years in the form of grants, having necessary conversations and cutting red tape. Thanks a million!
The only thing stopping us from doing more is having enough feet on the ground so if you have any ideas, thoughts or want to help in our next venture, please get in touch!
