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.

(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.
