April 29th

Some of the Malton and Norton group are joined by Fairtrade supporters from Scarborough and Cherry Burton to have a Fairtrade walk. We walk on the beach from Robin Hood’s Bay to the Youth Hostel at Boggle Hole for Fairtrade coffee, tea and lovely cakes. All Youth Hostels have Fairtrade hot drinks, so this was a walk with a purpose! The weather was lovely, sunny and almost warm! Here you can see us with our flag.
