From Eden Hill and Basso. By Suburban Ninja, who also gives a teaser to council bumblings trying to create characters Bas n Dean to represent teh hood. They apparently were created, but no images remain. I’m sure Don Smith would have been inside a Bas ‘n Dean costume at some local fair.
10.14 Suite of Characters and Messages for Promoting Projects and Events of the Town of Bassendean (Ref: INFM/INTPROP/1 – Bob Jarvis, CEO)


Council’s consideration of a suite of “Mascot” messages based on the Bas ‘n’ Dean theme for use on signage and reports across a range of Council activities.


At its Ordinary Meeting held on 28 November 2008, Council resolved the following:

“MOVED Cr Gangell, Seconded Cr Pule, that Council receives a summary report on the feasibility of developing a Town Mascot i.e. Billie the Builder to promote capital works projects within the Town.”

The CEO has had a suite of themed messages produced, not only for Capital Works signage, but also for a range of other Council projects and activities including:

* Environmental Projects

* Community Events

* Planning documents and development sites

The suite of themes can be used as a “footer” on related documents and as signs for the appropriate events/projects and sites.

The Bas ‘n’ Dean characters were the original idea of local resident Mr Willie Westlake for use for signage on the Swan River. Sadly, Mr. Westlake passed away in 2002. The Town had proposed that the characters would be used for community events, but it would appear that the proposal did not gain momentum.

    In my student days – late eighties – I may have visited Bas N Dean as Eggemon the talking egg, but I can’t recall entertaining in that particular place since then. Mind you, those mullet and tattoo jungles start meld into one big urban nightmare after a while.

    Basso council could save on costumes by employing Bas Zempelis ‘n’ Peter Dean. Bas could be the Town of Basso ‘ambazzador’. The possibilities are almost limitless.

  5. I love the smell of corruption in a council.
