Standing Committee Report

September 2017

At its monthly meeting committee members of Chelmsford City Fairtrade Campaign organised a series of activities to take them through to March 2018. The first will be its AGM which will take place in Christ Church, New London Road at 7.30pm on 31st October. Copies of the Annual Report can be read on the website at Everyone is welcome to the meeting and we will be showing a short Fairtrade film before we conduct our business.

A stall will be held in Chelmsford High Street on 11 November where a large range of Traidcraft and Fairtrade products can be purchased. We will have another stall when Amnesty International holds its Regional Conference at Trinity Methodist Church on 23rd September. Once again, we will be attending the Cathedral Christmas Fayre on 2 December.

Fairtrade Fortnight is from 26 February to 11 March 2018. We hope that as many organisations, companies, trade unions, churches and schools etc will play their part by organising an event. Do let us know what you have planned so that we can publicise it. We will have another High Street stall during Fairtrade Fortnight and a quiz evening on 10 March at St. Augustine’s Church Hall. This is a new and larger venue for us as the number of teams wishing to participate has increased sharply over the past two years. As soon as you have a team do let us know through
