Keswick Agricultural Show & New Committee Members sought …

01 Sep Keswick Agricultural Show & New Committee Members sought …

At the Keswick Agricultural Show a large Fairtrade banana was to beseen walking round in the crowd.  It was Anne Baird in the banana suit.She was greeted with smiles from adults and giggles from children and,we trust, a reminder to all to buy Fairtrade bananas and other products.We gave leaflets to those who were most interested: they described thehelp that Fairtrade is giving to farmers.  I have written to tell youabout this, but to remind you, the help includes training inenvironmentally friendly practices,  the provision of biogas stoves andhelp in switching to other green energy fuels.   There were a few peopleto whom we gave our campaign leaflets and they may well join us.  We arefortunate in having 85 members of the campaign but we are always happywhen people show their support for Fairtrade by joining us.

We would, however, like to have another one or two people on theCommittee.  Anne Davies has resigned and Bernadette is planning to moveaway from Keswick: that leaves just three of us; Anne Baird, Tom Rennieand myself. So, if you would be prepared to join us, we would welcome you with

open arms. We meet about once a month. Please give some thought to this request.

Best wishes,

Jo Alberti
