The Dumfries Fairtrade Group will be at the Run4Health ( on Sunday 28 June – at the Easterbrook Hall.  This fun run is organised by Dumfries Devorgilla Rotary Club and is always a great event – raising money for lots of local charities.  We are delighted that we have been asked to have a stall: we should have some (healthy) freebies to give away and it will be the first outing for our new pop-up banners (picture to follow soon).

Our next get together will be on Thursday July 8.  This will be a short meeting followed by refreshments (we are not this year planning a BBQ, this should ensure that the weather is glorious…) .  Please get in touch if you plan to  join us (so we know how many cakes to bake…)

We are starting to plan our Fairer World Fair (Saturday 7 November) and hope to include locally made products that include Fairtrade ingredients – so if you are local maker/baker etc who sells products eg sweets, jam, cakes, that include Fairtrade or fairly traded ingredients and you would like to be involved – don’t be shy – let us know!
