Nicki Dixon is launching an appeal for new members to join the Sudbury group to work to maintain our town’s Fairtrade status. She’s particularly keen to hear from anyone (not just churchgoers) who are interested in helping promote the concept of Fairtrade in their social groups and workplaces. She is also contacting schools to see if they’d like to get involved.
She is not envisaging endless meetings and paperwork but maybe a get together every other month (or further apart if the need for a meeting isn’t there) to discuss news and ways to promote the group to others, including those outside our church families. Nicki has booked a stall space at the Ballingdon Fete on Sunday September 6 where she’ll hopefully be selling some Fairtrade goodies, run a lucky dip and hand out leaflets.
Fairtrade fortnight (which starts on Feb 24) will be an ideal opportunity to showcase our Fairtrade status so anyone with any ideas can contact Nicki at firstname.lastname@example.org
She will also be attending the Suffolk Association of Fairtrade Towns day in Beccles on July 11.
Other plans include a market stall in the warmer months, more promotion for the stall at Kettle and Fish and continued growth of the Facebook page.
