Fairtrade Fortnight saw our usual activities in various local schools; assemblies, workshops and helping schools sell a variety of Fairtrade goods. Thanks to Amotherby, Norton, Rillington, St Mary’s RC, Welburn and West Heslerton schools for their active participation in Fairtrade fortnight.
We also had snack tastings at St Leonard’s Church, a coffee morning at Malton Baptist Church and a stall selling Fairtrade goods at St Michael’s Church.
March 4th, Fairtrade snack tasting in Malton library, healthy dried fruit first, then chocolate and pea nuts as a treat, hot and cold drinks too.
Saturday March 11th our Fairtrade and Local Craft Fair, this year with the addition of two community groups. A big success with more visitors than ever before and lots of appreciative comments about our Fairtrade snack tastings.
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.
We have a stall at the official opening of Norton Hive and Community Library
July 30thand now a stall at Norton Town Council’s celebration of Yorkshire Day
A group of us have coffee in Morrison’s café and then have our photo taken, a thank you to Morrison’s for serving Fairtrade hot drinks in their café. Photo courtesy of Malton Gazette and Herald.
Another successful stall, this time in Old Malton. Mikron theatre company are performing a play about Youth Hostels, so as YHA are a Fairtrade friendly organisation we made a special poster for the occasion.
