Fairtrade Fortnight 2010 (22 Feb -7 March)
Discussion re Ministry of Chocolate who Rita has been in touch with but it was felt that following the theme of 'The big swap' based around tea which the Fairtrade Foundation are publicising would be more successful at that time. Gail suggested a title of 'A fair trade for justice'

MINISTRY OF CHOCOLATE
All agreed that we would like to host an event.
It was proposed that 3 children's workshops on World Fair Trade Day 8th May would be suitable. (It would have to be on Friday rather than Saturday the day itself)

Again discussed that it would be good to have more traders/cafes at least for the Fortnight, we could take some Fairtrade Tea bags in and do a 'swap'
Cookbook progress discussed. Rita and Ann to proof read and list anything else which needs to go in.
We welcomed Rev Peter Mayo-Smith the new vicar at St Michaels and All Angels who is very keen to be involved. He offered a display in Church for Fairtrade Fortnight and will base a sermon on 7th March.
