There will be lots of stalls with local and Fairtrade goods,
free water bottles, Redstone willow weaving and sales salt, Wax wraps,
environmental and ecological information.
AND the launch of the new Alsager Fairtrade shopping bags
designed by a pupil from Alsager school. Come & join us for a great event!
Wesley Place is a Fair Trade Church
In 2005, Wesley Place made a commitment to become a Fair Trade Church, and has been honouring this commitment ever since. It achieves this by:
Using fairly traded products in its meetings (e.g. tea and coffee served after the Sunday morning service)
Holding a Fair Trade stall on a regular basis, e.g. after services, at special events etc. The purpose of this is to provide an opportunity for people to buy fairly traded products which they cannot currently obtain locally, and to spread the message of Fair Trade in Alsager
Participating in One World Week events and informing those who come of the need to support fairly traded goods.
Holding Fair Trade events within Alsager (e.g. Big Brew and Bake) and inviting members of the public to attend these so they may become aware of the need to support Fair Trade
Fostering a partnership with local schools so as to teach young children about the need for Fair Trade.
We have a short presentation of some of the other ways we have been involved in supporting Fair Trade
