Safer Melville Super Hero

The City of Melville invites the community to take an active role in creating safe and secure communities by participating in free activities, events and workshops during Safer Melville Month throughout October.

There is something for the whole community with Constable Care Puppet Performances for children and Boosting Mood and Mind for seniors, to Protective Behaviour Workshops and free passes for the City’s LeisureFit Recreation Centres for all ages and abilities.

Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said that events during Safer Melville Month were created from community feedback and key findings from the recently adopted 2017-2021 Safer Melville Plan which works towards a community where people feel safe and secure at all times.

“It’s fantastic to see fun, free, family events promoting the message that connected communities are safer communities, and that we all have a part to play in creating a Safer Melville, including residents, business owners, WA Police, the City’s Community Safety Service (CSS) and all our Safer Melville partners,” Mayor Aubrey said.

“There are many ways to participate including attending the Neighbourhood Watch Coffee Morning, enjoying a safety themed Baby Rhyme Time, Storytime, Dad, Uncle and Granddad (DUG) Storytime, hosting a Garage Sale or getting fit for summer with Active in the Park classes.”

“Community members can support women in crisis by donating items to Zonta House Refuse Association. Boxes will be placed around the City from 16 to 29 October, so if you have any of the items listed on our website that you no longer need, ensure they go to a good home at Zonta’s. Check out the link below for collection points and items Zonta need.”

“Local business Stockland Bull Creek Shopping Centre are hosting a full day event about all things safety, including free UV bike marking, face painting, live performance from a local band, first aid demonstrations, food stalls and much more.”

“Thanks to Stockland Bull Creek, if you complete the Safer Melville questionnaire and tell us what you did during October that makes you a Safer Melville Super Hero you will go in the running to win a $500 gift voucher,” he said.
