MORE than 190 guests were celebrated during the City of Fremantle’s 88th Pioneers’ luncheon on Friday.

The event is held annually to recognise the people who have lived or worked in Fremantle for 50 years.

“Fremantle is famous for its lifestyle, live music scene, heritage and coffee culture, but it’s the people of Fremantle who make our port city a special place,” Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said.

“Whether they were born and raised in Freo, discovered our city on world travels and never left or moved here to start a new life, this event is a small way of thanking them for being part of Fremantle.”
