Fairtrade Fortnight 2014

We held a very successful stall in Fareham Shopping Centre on Saturday 22nd February. We were pleased to welcome the Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Susan Bayford, together with her Consort Cllr Brian Bayford, and other members of the Borough Council including the Leader, Cllr Seán Woodward, and also Fareham's MP Mark Hoban.

This year's Fortnight focused on bananas, and as well as giving away bananas that had been kindly donated by the Co-Op store on Gudge Heath Lane, we had a life-size banana to promote the campaign!
