The City of Melville is working together with local businesses and key community safety groups to hold a free family safety event on Sunday, 31 March 2019 at Wireless Hill to help raise awareness of important community safety and security messages.
Wireless Hill, a popular park for families to visit and roll out a picnic rug, walk the dog, learn about history in the museum and capture an incredible view from standing at the top of the lookout tower will become all the more inviting at A Safe Day on the Hill on Sunday from 10.00am till 2.00pm.
City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the event will feature various information stalls and hands-on activities from local businesses and key community safety groups for families to explore together.
“A connected community is a safer community, so it is important that residents educated on important safety topics and are able to interact with local safety services,” Mayor Aubrey said.
“Why not pack a picnic, bring the kids down and get to know these services on a more personal level – you could even pick up some new safety tips and tricks along the way!”
Children will be able to play on a Murdoch fire station fire truck, pot their own plant, climb on one of the new Parks and Reserves tractors, complete the KidSafe WA poisons activity, participate in some structured sports activities and even get their bike’s brakes and tyres checked while learning tips from People on Bicycles on safer riding practices.
Burglary and theft from cars was identified as a priority in the 2017-2021 Safer Melville Plan, and A Safe Day on the Hill was planned following this as a great way for the City of Melville to work with relevant key partners in hosting a community education forum/event to raise awareness of home and car safety.
The event will coincide with the popular Wireless Hill Pop Up Tea Room Devonshire Teas hosted by Antiquitea, which aims to activate the Wireless Hill site and raise awareness of everything the site has to offer in order to encourage more people to use this great community space.
