Fairtrade Fortnight 2012

We held a very successful stall in the Fareham Farmers' Market on Saturday 3rd March. We were pleased to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress of Fareham, Cllr Trevor and Mrs Ruth Cartwright, and other members of the Borough Council including the Leader, Cllr Seán Woodward, and also Fareham's MP Mark Hoban.

With the theme of this year's Fortnight being "Take a Step", we invited passers-by to colour in a footprint as an expression of their commitment to Fairtrade.
