Fairtrade Fortnight 2018

January 29, 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.

Fairtrade Fortnight 2017

February 14, 2017

Fairtrade Fortnight 2017 runs from 27th February to 12th March.

The theme this year is “Take a Fairtrade Break!”  We all need to take a little time out every now and again, and how better than with a Fairtrade drink or snack.

Crowborough Fairtrade is running a little Fairtrade Fortnight competition.  We’d like you to email us your reasons for choosing Fairtrade products.  Tell us why taking five is even better with Fairtrade, and why you buy your Fairtrade drinks and snacks here in Crowborough.

The reasons we like the most will win the author a picnic hamper, and a few Fairtrade goodies to go in it.

Send your entries to CrowboroughFairtrade@gmail.com.

Fairtrade Fortnight 2016

February 13, 2016

Fairtrade Fortnight begins on the 29th February this year, and ends on the 13th March.

“Sit down for breakfast, Stand up for farmers!”

..is the theme, and we’re running a little photo competition to encourage you to see how many Fairtrade products you can put on  your breakfast table.

All you need to do is arrange your breakfast table to show as many Fairtrade goods as prominently and as creatively as possible, take a picture (using a digital camera or smartphone – we can’t take prints), and send it to us at:

CrowboroughFairtrade@gmail.com

At the end of Fairtrade Fortnight we’ll judge the snaps, and whoever took the one we think shows the most Fairtrade creativity will win a Fairtrade hamper!

We’ll be showing the winning picture (and probably the best of the rest, too) on our website and Facebook page.  Please make sure that if your picture has any people in it that they have given their permission for the picture to be published.

The Winner!

(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.
