Chelmsford Events & Latest News



We held an exhibition of Fairtrade posters in Remembrance Square and a Fairtrade Breakfast which attracted 45 people including the Bishop of Bradwell

Chelmsford Star Co-operative Society organised a Fairtrade food and drink tasting. Opened by the Society’s President, Pauline Dodd, the speakers were Nicole Gay, a member of our committee, Kate Willis from the Fairtrade Foundation, the Mayor of Chelmsford, Cllr. Bob Massey and Hugo Guerrero from the Norandino Co-operative Peru.




The inauguration of our Fairtrade Woodland was a great success, not least that we had good weather, and we were delighted with the support we received. woodlandCllr. Deakin, Cabinet Member for Safer Chelmsford, welcomed everyone and the Mayor of Chelmsford, Cllr. Bob Massey spoke about the Council’s long-standing support for Fairtrade, and then planted one of our 15 trees. After that, we all joined in.

Many thanks have to be recorded to pupils and staff from Thriftwood College and to Fairtrade supporter, John Boreham, who travelled from Brentwood to ‘dig for Fairtrade’.

On March 2, 2019, thirty four people attended our first Fairtrade Breakfast. Held in the Central Baptist Church, the guest of honour was the Mayor, Cllr. Yvonne Spence. She was accompanied by the Deputy Mayor, Cllr. Christine Garrett. The event was planned to thank our City Councillors for their support since 2005 and a special thank you to our most active members. It was a very enjoyable event.
