Standing Committee Report

October 2017

At its monthly meeting committee members of Chelmsford City Fairtrade Campaign finalised plans for the AGM. This  will be held at Christ Church, New London Road, at 7.30pm on 31st October. A film about Fairtrade roses grown in Kenya will be shown before the formal business. Our Annual Report can be read at website: https://chelmsfordfairtrade.wordpress.com. If you are interested in getting involved in promoting Fairtrade, please come along.
The committee was pleased to hear that our stall at Amnesty International’s Regional Conference had been a success. A large range of Fairtrade and Traidcraft products will be on sale at the Cathedral Christmas Fayre on 2 December.
We have two stalls planned for the High Street with the first taking place on 11 November. Do come along and purchase some Christmas treats.
Although Fairtrade Fortnight is a long way off (26 February to 11 March 2018) plans are already being made for events by us and a number of local groups, with Chelmsford Co-operative Party being the first to announce that its members are to hold a Fairtrade Breakfast. We hope that many organisations, companies, trade unions, churches and schools etc will play their part by having an event.
