David Galloway, Chair, Leederville Connect

Leederville is one of Perth’s most vibrant urban villages – and we’re very proud of it too. It’s a town centre with a beating heart, a bit of grunge and grit, and a great sense of community.

Community events like the Carnival offer so much to so many, from the revellers that attend to the organisers and volunteers that drive it - and to the locals who feel the connection and energy long before and after the event.

Light Up Leederville doesn’t just help put this great café, leisure and retail strip on the map, it also brings different communities together. And without the support from locals through Leederville Connect, a community event like this, simply, could not exist.

I encourage anyone interested in making Leederville better, whether you’re a local or a regular visitor, to get involved via Leederville Connect.

Come and say hello at the Vincent stall – and enjoy the day!
