Crowborough Action on FairTrade Winter Events

November 26, 2012

DSC_0082CrAFT have been busy this Winter!  First, we brought our famous FairTrade crêpes to the Beacon Community College Christmas Fair.  While it drizzled outside, visitors were able to enjoy warm Fairtrade crêpes filled with Fairtrade banana, Fairtrade melted chocolate, or Fairtrade lemon juice with Fairtrade sugar.

There will be more events in 2013 – check the website regularly!

(of the Crowborough Summer Fair 2012 Fairtrade Competition)

Thanks to the many people that turned out for the Crowborough 2012  Summer Fair.  It poured down, the field was muddy, and there was even a clap of thunder, but the worst of British weather couldn’t keep the good folk of Crowborough away from their Fairtrade Crepes!

And we had loads of entries for our simple Fairtrade competition that highlighted the availability of Fairtrade produce on Crowborough’s High Street.  Amelia Knight was the lucky winner of the Fairtrade chocolate bar prize.

Our competition poster showed that shops on Crowborough’s High Street stock  Fairtrade goods from almost all the continents on Earth.  Buying Fairtrade locally helps maintain a thriving town, and helps producers in developing countries.
