The City of Gosnells Spring into Summer events season received a welcome boost this week, through a $40,000 Lotterywest grant.

Thornlie MLA Chris Tallentire presented Mayor Terresa Lynes with a cheque for the funding, which will be used to help the City deliver its Fusion Food and Culture Festival in November, Tropic Like It’s Hot pop-up water park in February and Sunset Cinema series in February and March.

“The events we run at the City of Gosnells help to build community spirit by bringing people together as well as showcasing the great places and spaces in the City. The events are also entertaining and a lot of fun,” Mayor Lynes said.

“The Fusion Festival is our biggest event on the calendar and it brings together local residents and people from the wider Perth metropolitan area in a celebration of our diverse community, through multicultural music and entertainment, food, art and cultural experiences.

“We want everyone in our community to be able to enjoy our events, and support like this grant from Lotterywest enables us to provide free entry for all.”

Mr Tallentire said he was pleased to be able to present the cheque for Lotterywest grant funding to the City, on behalf of the State Government.

“The State Government is committed to helping to provide opportunities for local people to experience events and activities that create connections and build communities.,” Mr Tallentire said.

“It is always a pleasure to attend City of Gosnells events, including the Fusion Festival, Tropic Like It’s Hot and Sunset Cinemas, and it’s great to see so many members of the local community enjoying new experiences and having fun.”

Fusion Festival is on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 November at Mills Park, Tropic Like It’s Hot will be held on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February, and the Sunset Cinema series will be held at various locations across the City, starting on Friday 10 February.
