(9/11/17) Ask me, I'm a Freo local

Freo locals are being asked to share their local knowledge with visitors through a new initiative from the City of Fremantle.

People who are passionate about their city and are comfortable being approached by visitors can pick up an ‘Ask me I’m a Freo local’ badge from the City of Fremantle and wear it when they’re out and about in town.

Fremantle Councillor Dave Hume says the idea is for locals to share their love of Freo with visitors by being available to provide directions, offer advice and give insights into their favourite parts of the city.

“Fremantle locals are a friendly bunch who are eager to share their knowledge and passion with visitors and show them places they might not otherwise know about,” Councillor Hume said.

“This campaign is about putting a friendly face on Freo and creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for visitors.”

The Freo local badges will be distributed to City of Fremantle staff and local businesses.

They can also be collected from the Fremantle Visitor Centre at the Town Hall and the customer service counter at the City’s administration building.
