On Saturday 3 November months of contacting, organising and advertising culminated in the Bangalow Uniting Church Fair Trade Fair. Although we regularly hold pre-Christmas street stalls selling Fair Trade goods, which have quite a following in Bangalow, this was our first attempt at a bigger better fair with other Fair Traders invited.
The Variety of Fair Trade goodies was excellent and we were well supported by locals who enthusiastically bought up big whilst enjoying Phil’s excellent Fair Trade coffee and munching on Bangalow ladies’ cakes and slices (not to be missed). The Raise the Roof choir performed twice and were absolutely fantastic.Their home grown Fair Trade song is now doing the rounds of Facebook Fair Trade groups and gaining them fame!
The Fair traders who came were impressed with the enthusiasm of Northern Rivers locals and are keen to do it again next year. It was great to see the church car park full of people and the church engaged in promoting an important social justice issue.
Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to the day or just came and bought things!
