For this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight we encouraged everyone joins in with our Fair Breaks:  We wanted to see how many Fair Breaks we can have across Fairtrade Fortnight 2017 (27 February – 12 March).   And lots of folk took  part – whether at work, school, church,  or at home – simply by serving Fairtrade products to friends and colleagues, and taking a photo to share on social media using the hashtag #DumfriesFairBreak

First off were the Anaesthetists at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary.

Next up was the Film Club at the Robert Burns Centre – where they always serve Fairtrade tea and Coffee.  We watched the wonderful La la Land and then had a Fairtrade cuppa.

The cafe at Marks and Spencers joined in, as did the Galloway Woodturners.

Libraries in Dumfries joined in with displays at Georgetown, Lochthorn and Ewart Libraries, and tours of the library and archives at the Ewart, followed by a Fairtrade tea and coffee.

Doonie met up  with Duncan the Dunscore Fairtrade Beltie at the Dunscore Big Brunch.

Fairtrade churches joined in with Fairtrade breakfasts and after service tea and coffee. Workplace Fairbreaks took place at the Crichton and at WWT Caerlaverock.  There was also a Fairtrade Coffee morning at Dumfries and Galloway College where we were spoiled for choice with the range of cakes and treats provided by the catering students.  Finally we joined with our friends at the Oxfam Shop in Dumfries for a  coffee and books morning.
