Fair Trade

Stall in the Market

Change of opening times

Because of the current lockdown restrictions, the indoor market stall will now only be open between 10.00am and 2.00pm on Saturdays. However, if you live within Shrewsbury,

Marion Haworth is happy to offer a delivery service: please contact her directly.

In February / March 2021are celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight.

The theme this year is "Choose the World You Want",

we are planning a virtual coffee morning at 10.30am on Saturday 6th March.

Watch out for further details!

 

In Autumn 2019 we were celebrating both 40 years of Traidcraft, and 25 years since the Fairtrade logo was launched. Happily, we were able to renew Shrewsbury's status as a Fairtrade Town for the 4th time.

The Town Council gave their enthusiastic support, and the photo shows some of our supporters enjoying tea with the Mayor in his parlour - the wonderful cakes were made by Fran Wood and Alice Brownlie!

In 2020, despite flooding and the coronavirus, not only has the stall in the Indoor Market remained open whenever government restrictions allowed, but in between times, Roy and Marion Haworth ran a delivery service from their home. As a result, we have sold very nearly as much as we did last year, which puts us

in the position to donate further money to the Traidcraft Exchange and the Fairtrade Foundation, to help them both in developing Fairtrade, and in supporting the growers and producers who have suffered enormously

in this very difficult year.

 

Meanwhile, the most enormous thank you for your continued support, in running the stall, and in buying Fairtrade goods!

 

If you would like to get more involved, please contact Ken and Meriel Chippindale via admin.
