Fairtrade Fortnight 2018

“Come On In!”


That’s the theme for Fairtrade Fortnight which, this year, starts on 26th February and ends on 11th March.  To celebrate Crowborough’s 10 years as a Fairtrade Town, Crowborough Fairtrade is organising a Fairtrade Baking Competition.


All you need to do is bake a great Fairtrade cake!  (But don’t worry if you aren’t able to enter the competition; since the theme this year is “Come On In!“, everyone is invited to have a free cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee with us on the day).


There are two categories, one for bakers 13 years old and under, and another one for everyone else.

The rules are the same for everyone, though.  You cake will be judged on:

  • How many Fairtrade ingredients you’ve used.
  • How good it tastes.
  • How good it looks.

Our judge is a cake expert from the WI, and there will be a Fairtrade hamper as a prize for each category.

To enter, simply bring your cake along to Crowborough Town Hall on Saturday, 3rd March, between 10am and 11:30am.

Judging will take place between 11:30am and 12:30pm.  Prizes will be awarded at 12:30pm, and you’ll need to have had your last slice of cake and cup of tea or coffee by 1pm.Meringues

Don’t forget to look out for Fairtrade goods in Crowborough’s shops all the time, not just during Fairtrade Fortnight.
