TERRIBLE ACCIDENT FOR EAT NO EVIL OWNER

Posted in accidents, city of fremantle, food, markets, Uncategorized by freoview on March 30, 2018

 

 

Terrible news about one of Fremantle’s nice guys Ben French of the Eat No Evil foodstall fame many know from the Under the Bridge Foodtrucks, Bathers Beach market, etc..

Benjamin ventured to Thailand on what was meant to be a break from reality.
When suddenly things turned for the worst. On the 28th of March 2018 Benjamin was involved in an accident which has now lead to the fight for survival. With extensive and life threatening injuries, Ben is currently in a critical condition.

Some of his current injuries include severe brain trauma, broken spine, punctured lungs, broken ribs, many broken bones throughout his body and severe damage to his skull. Several brain surgeries and blood transfusions have already taken place in order to stabilise his condition before the rest of his injuries can be attended to and assessed properly, but as his condition is extremely critical the hospital costs are continuing to rise – currently at $44 000 on day 2.

Ben is currently in a coma and alongside the extent of his injuries, the doctors have given us a time frame of 2 weeks to 3 months of ongoing hospital treatment for small gains to take place.

This page has been organised in hopes to help fundraise enough money to partially cover his hospital treatments. With positivity and blessings we hope to see his condition stabilise, where he can return to his hometown here in Perth and be surrounded by his family and friends with the continual care he requires. We are extending all helping hands in this time of need and are hopeful that you can find it within you to donate anything possible to help us reach the target. Thank you in advance to everyone who has extended their generosity. Please keep Benjamin in your thoughts and prayers.

If you can help financially please go to the Gofundme page:

Please share this information, so that we can get a lot of funding to help Ben!!! Thank you.

An early reminder that the lovely Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKETS, have relocated back to their old spot at Lefroy Road at Fremantle College.

The market has been a great meeting place for locals and beyond and is the perfect place to buy fresh produce, bread, and lots of other yummy things, as well as delicious breakfast and coffee.

There is live music, the animal touch farm from Farmer Damian, face painting.

It’s lovely to sit on a rug under the trees and engage with your local community.

Open every Sunday from 8 am till midday.

NEW FLEA MARKET AT MANNING PARK

Posted in fremantle, markets, western australia by freoview on March 8, 2017

I know Manning Park is not part of Fremantle(yet) but it is run by Fremantle resident and my friend Kylie Wheatley, so it deserves a plug.

The market will have a flea market every Saturday morning in March, just  pay $ 15.00 for a bay and sell all the stuff you have been collecting but no longer need.

The Manning Park Market is under the trees next to the playground and there is heaps of parking. It got food and craft stalls and live local music, so check it out this Saturday from 8.30 am-12.30 pm.

The experts claim this Saturday and Sunday are the worst and most hectic days for Christmas shopping, so I’ll stay well away from it all and bought my food at 8 am.

Local Council meetings are now done for this year so it will probably be a very quiet news time for this blogger.

So let me remind you of a few events that are on tomorrow Sunday December 18.

Of course the lovely Growers Green Farmers Market will be on from 8-12 at the South Fremantle Senior High School on Lefroy Road.

The Fremantle Arts Centre free courtyard music session from 2-4 pm features Liz Stringer from Victoria, one of Australia’s most respected songwriters.

Also on from 2-7 pm is the Sunday SoundsMusic for the Beeliar Wetlands event in protest of the Roe 8 highway. It is on at Hope Road, North Lake.

And from 6 pm onward the Fremantle Christmas Carols will be on at South Beach with food vans and a beautiful sunset.

Fremantle is an outstanding city to connect with the community so get out and about and meet new people, and if you really need to do Christmas shopping, shop local in Freo please to support our traders!!
