WILLAGEE will hold its first ever night market later this month, as the suburb continues to shed its daggy image.
The markets are the brainchild of the newly-formed Willagee town team, made up from local residents and businesses who want to reactivate their neighbourhood.
The family-friendly market, to be held at George Humes Park from 5pm-8pm on November 30, will have stalls, food trucks and live music.
Melville mayor Russell Aubrey said residents have been the driving force behind Willagee’s ongoing transformation.
“In 2018, everyone can be proud to say Willagee has everything,” he said.
“It has wonderful parks and public open spaces, a new medical centre, cafes and businesses that are owned and run by locals, excellent public transport, a renovated library and always a strong sense of community.
“The establishment of Willagee’s town team, which is the City of Melville’s first ever town team, is another example of the community spirit in the suburb.”
If the market is a success, the town team will look at making it a regular event.
