Fairtrade Stall ~ As you know, we run a weekly Fairtrade Stall. The products on sale make a real difference to people's lives in the developing world. Please make time to have a look at the products during coffee. Fairtrade products do cost slightly more, but you are radically changing someone's life for the better by buying some rather good and exciting produce. Our relative wealth brings responsibility - please respond to that responsibility, it makes a big difference to people's lives.
