Speaking up for Fair Trade

The founder of the international Fair Trade Town movement will be speaking in Stratford on Wednesday 28 September in support of Fair Trade in Stratford.

Bruce Crowther led the group which set up the first ever Fair Trade Town in Garstang, Lancashire, in 2000. There are now over 1,000 Fair Trade Towns in 34 countries around the world.

Bruce will be speaking about his experience, including work to help set up Fair Trade Towns in other countries, at a public meeting at Stratford Quakers Meeting House, 37 Maidenhead Road, Stratford upon Avon CV 37 6XT.

The meeting, which will start at 7.30, will also discuss how best to organise Fair Trade activities in Stratford.
