Fairtrade Fortnight.

On 6th March Wesley’s hosted an African Drumming Workshop and, on the 26th February, there was a chocolate making demonstration at the United Reformed Church Hall – two very successful events.

Fairtrade Quiz - The presentation of a £20 Fairtrade hamper and a £10 voucher, courtesy of the Mustard Seed, was made at Wesley’s on 5th March to the quiz winner Catherine Teasdale a frequent visitor to Garstang. We would like to thank everyone who entered the quiz and wish them the best of luck next year.

We have once again agreed with the Library to put on a Fairtrade Display which will also be available in the Visitor Centre.

We would like to thank the local schools who have invited us to give Fairtrade presentations during the Fortnight.

Fairtrade Directory

A Garstang Fairtrade Directory is being produced and will be available soon.

Any business, club, organisation, school etc. using Fairtrade products are invited to take photos using these products and email them to us at garstangfairtrade@gmail.com as we would love to put them onto our website and Facebook page.
