    It’s sad about Traidcraft but I’m not surprised. My church had a fairtrade table once a month until fairly recently but it wasn’t well supported and no-one in the mainly elderly congregation wanted to do the work. Traidcraft products are quite expensive and you can get fairtrade chocolate etc. cheaper in supermarkets.

    I am not getting as many celink messages as I used to, maybe because some people are still using my old email address, which I can’t access. Please use the email address given here. I hope to come to the Annual Members’ Meeting on 17 November.

    Best wishes to everyone

    I agree Traidcraft prices are more expensive BUT they are ethical, and Traidcraft send more money back to producers than any supermarket. Supermarkets could have been going into fairtrade as they thought they could be losing a share of the market. All supermarkets have now taken Geobars off their shelves perhaps in favour of gluten-free and vegan?? I also believe supermarkets depress prices so much that perhaps we do not really pay the true value of the food. Look forward to seeing you at the AGM, I have forwarded your new email.
