Save Our Foreshore Quinns Beach Facebook group founders Nat Sangalli, Kelly Lonsdale and Sarah Hombsch welcomed Wanneroo City councillors’ decision last Tuesday to build a limestone wall at Frederick Stubbs Park.

Mrs Sangalli posted the news last week, congratulating the community on its campaign.

‘Thanks to the community of Quinns and surrounding suburbs we will be able to keep our iconic and much-loved Fred Stubbs Park,’ she said.

‘On Tuesday night the council passed an amendment to proceed with building the limestone wall without delaying another 12 months.

‘It has been a huge six months for our beach and foreshore and Sarah Hombsch, Kelly Lonsdale and I could not have done it without the massive support of residents and visitors of 6030.’

Mrs Sangalli said Stephen Faulkner and Caroline White had given ‘invaluable’ input and ‘tremendous support’.

Ms Lonsdale said they were ‘extremely happy’ with the March 4 decision.

‘The City’s decision has sent a clear message to our community, telling us we have been heard and our strong desire for the park to remain for generations to come will be honoured,’ she said.

‘We are grateful to the City for its proactive approach and for understanding what an integral part of the foreshore the park plays with in the community.’
