Fairtrade Coffee morning

August 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Settle fair trade community
We look forward to seeing you at our fairtrade coffee morning. Join us for fairtrade tea, coffee and biscuits. There will be a fair trade stall at which to buy a range of fairtrade products.
Fairtrade is thirty years old, so there will also be a cake to celebrate this fantastic achievement.
Settle became a fair trade community, accredited by The Fairtrade Foundation, in July 2023 and since then has held a variety of events.
As part of this year’s activities ACE’s Food Group is running a ‘Fairtrade 90kg Rice Challenge’. This is how much a subsistence farmer has to sell in order to pay for one year’s secondary school education.  Education is very expensive for them. We have one year to complete the challenge and rice will be available from Melanie at this event and our regular Green Cafes. 1kg bags of either white or brown cost £4.00.
There will also be information about the Settle Plastic Free group. The group recently undertook three evenings of litter picking with the local beavers, cubs and scouts and ACE Settle, to reveal just how much single use plastic is still being generated and thrown away.
Flowerpot Festival (13th July-1st September): visit our Flowerpot Fairtrade Man (in Tillman Close) and Settle Plastic Free’s seal (highlighting marine plastic pollution) located in the Quaker Meeting House garden.
You can also find out more about fair trade and join in during Fairtrade Fortnight (9th-22nd September)
