Did you know that in the 1800s livestock in the Gosnells area was once considered too precious to eat and was only used as breeding stock? 

Whether for trade, transport or friendship, animals have been a valuable asset in the lives of residents throughout the City’s history.    

City of Gosnells Mayor David Goode is encouraging residents to attend next month’s local history talk in Gosnells, to be held at the Lyal Richardson Hall on Saturday 7 December to learn about this previously untold part of the City’s heritage.

“The City’s strong ties to agriculture means animals had, and continue to have, a big role in the livelihoods and lifestyle of our residents,” he said.  

“In this unique history talk, participants will hear about the relationship between humans and animals in Gosnells and discover why so many of us have a special connection with our furry or feathered friends.”  

The local history talk will take place between 1.30pm and 2.30pm, at the Lyal Richardson Hall, The Agonis in Gosnells.

The event is free, however bookings are essential – call 9397 3145 or visit the link below.
