Throughout August and September we ran the Busking on the Strand activation series. It was a great success with a diverse range of entertainment including singer/songwriters, father/son muso’s, belly dancers, and Wellard’s own Singing Uke’s (pictured above). The busking occurred alongside the monthly “Gift and Take” market which was a big hit.
We look forward to bringing further activations to The Strand in The Village at Wellard!
The Wellard Village People Sundowner 2023
POSTED ON 2 May 2023
On Thursday night 27 April, The Wellard Village People Sundowner took place at The Wellard Tavern. This sundowner celebrated the success and community involvement in the 7-Day Strand Makeover. Over 165 community members, volunteers and stakeholders were involved in the 7-Day Makeover, and 70 attendees to the Sundowner event, which was an amazing turnout.

Additional spots for the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme have been released!
POSTED ON 2 Jul 2020
Additional spots for the Federal Government’s First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) have just been released!
Usually first home buyers with less than a 20% deposit will need to pay lenders mortgage insurance. Under the Scheme, eligible first home buyers can purchase with a deposit of as little as 5% (lenders criteria apply). This is because the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) guarantees to provide participating lenders up to 15% of the value of the property purchased!
With the WA Stamp Duty Concessions, that means you could qualify for up to a HUGE $69,440* in benefits!
And, if you need to borrow over 80% of your property value, you can apply for the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme and avoid paying Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI).
Sign up to receive our FHB Toolkit, for expert advice, weekly step-by-step guides and exclusive videos
