BROMSGROVE’S first ever Fairtrade Fair held at the town’s Methodist Centre has been hailed a great success.

The event saw a world of foods and crafts come to the town, such as Palestinian foods, South American and Indian jewellery and beautiful hats from Madagascar.

Stall-holders came from across the West Midlands and included representatives from Babies Town in Bromsgrove’s very own The Strand, Jams for Gambia based in Cofton Hackett and Karena Crafts from Redditch Craft Centre.

Visitors were given information about all the local cafes and shops which sold Fairtrade items and those who went along were able to make their own Fairtrade smoothies by cycling the Green Ape Man’s eco bike.

Members of Bromsgrove Fairtrade Town Steering group, who organised the event, were delighted with the way it went and are hoping to hold another event in the future.

One stallholder said: “There was a lovely atmosphere and a good flow of visitors.”
