I am a freelance writer and photographer from Sydney who has now had five books published on fishing. I also write for the Fishing Monthly Group and Australian Fishing Network.
I also like to travel and experience new things to do.
Catch up with family & friends at Subiaco PS Spring Fair
Spring will definitely spring into action at the Subiaco Primary School Spring Fair on Sunday the 6th of November as this will be the school's first fair within 15 years.
From 12 noon to 5pm, you will be able to join in the fun and explore the wonders of science at their Scitech Wonderland and sit back and watch the spectacular Scitech Stage Shows. If science is not your thing, you can try testing your skills at the Game Vault, go crazy on the Gym Bus, Bouncy Castle or the Giant Slide and who would want to miss out on their very own Subiaco Art Show!
Perugino, Perth's finest Italian restaurant, will be serving freshly cooked meatballs and profiteroles at their 'Taste of Italy' stall. You can also purchase some of their homemade tomato pasta and marmalade at the preserves stall. They have also generously donated a $200 voucher for the raffle, in case you miss their delicious food on the day!
The generous folks at The Subi Hotel have donated a dozen of their wines to the lucky sip stand. If you've had a drink here, you will know that their wine selection is fantastic, so don't miss out on this popular stand!
The Lolly Shoppe stand will have all kinds of delicious old style candy and sweets, yum!
