MORE than 2000 people attended the second annual Gateway Street Fair in Alkimos recently.

Alkimos Beach developers LandCorp and Lendlease hosted the free event on November 18 with Ecorp at the Gateway Shopping Precinct.

Entertainment included bouncy castles, fairies and music, with community groups also present, including Boomerang Bags, Alkimos Surf Club, Sprout Community Hub and Bike Doctor.

The Alkimos Pop Up Library hosted a mini art exhibition with artworks from the Alkimos Beach Primary School.

Alkimos Scouts Group raised $1148 through their fundraising barbecue.

“The Gateway Street Fair was a perfect way to showcase our vibrant coastal lifestyle to visitors and celebrate the achievements of the community over the last year,” Lendlease WA communities general manager Anthony Rowbottam said.

“We are passionate about creating a welcoming community where neighbours can get to know each other through community groups and activities.

“It’s these sorts of activities where residents get to meet at the beach and bond over shared interests that creates a well-connected community.”
