How lucky are we to live where we live?
Frasers Landing is blessed with a beautiful natural environment, surrounded by tranquil bushland, woodlands and the river foreshore. Nature reserves, wetlands, the estuary and coastline are all close by, so enjoying an outdoor lifestyle and connecting with nature is so easy.
As well as being connected to nature, the Frasers Landing community is also strongly connected with each other, and there is a strong sense of pride among the residents about where they live,
No matter where we live, though, no matter how pristine and peaceful, from time to time there will be things that need attention. It could be litter or graffiti, illegally parked cars, stray dogs or rubbish dumping.
This is where the power of community comes in. When we work together from a sense of shared responsibility, we can create a neighbourhood to be proud of, where everybody can feel safe.
One way that local residents can manage that is through the use of ‘Snap Send Solve’, a free app that makes reporting local issues quick and easy. If you see something – perhaps faulty street lighting, broken play equipment or a water leak, and you have the Snap Send Solve app, take a photo and then it’s just a couple of clicks to report it. Your location is automatically tagged, so your report goes straight to the right authority, whether that needs to be the City of Mandurah, Western Power or the Water Authority, for instance. Even a dumped trolley report will go to the right supermarket chain!
Ultimately, though, it’s good neighbourhood relationships that can transform and strengthen communities. Neighbourhood Watch is a great initiative that helps neighbours watch out for neighbours, to keep our streets safer.
Why not start a group in your neighbourhood? Getting involved is easy – it’s as simple as getting to know your neighbours and exchanging contact information. You only need five neighbours to start with, and you’ve got yourself another powerful community connection.
You can find out more about starting your own Neighbourhood Watch group at www.nhw.wa.gov.au/.
Whether you’re a new resident at Frasers Landing, or you’ve lived there for some time, there are many ways to connect, including the wonderful activities held regularly at the Community Centre - the heart of the Frasers Landing community.
Neighbours play a vital role in the safety and wellbeing of a community. So, if you don’t already, take the time to get to know your Frasers Landing neighbours soon!
