Fair-TradeThis year Fairtrade Fortnight runs from Monday 25 February to Sunday 10 March and the Fairtrade Foundation is urging us all to Go Further for Fairtrade.  This is exactly what we mean to do and hope for support from Lenzie residents!  There are lots of incentives, including 20% off Fairtrade food in the local Co-op Branch.

There was lots of support for Fairtrade in Lenzie in 2012 and the  Fairtrade stall in the Coffee Lounge (now MaMa Da Vinci’s) established a regular presence. But this year it seems that  Fairtrade is happening all over Lenzie.  There will be events during the Fortnight at St Cyprians’ Childminders, the Girls’ Brigade, the Junior Boys’ Brigade, Anchor Boys, Cubs, the Lenzie Public Hall Mother and Toddler group, Lenzie Old Church, Lenzie Union Church, University of the Third Age, and St Mary’s Church in Kirkintilloch with its Christian Aid Fair on Saturday 2 March.

If you belong to one of these groups please check with them for the date and time of their event.  Otherwise, come along to Mama Da Vinci’s on Friday 8 March to stock up on Kilombero rice and Eswatini chutney, not to mention Divine Chocolate – as well as crafty gifts!

More big news is that our detailed application to gain Fairtrade Town status has been completed and submitted – watch this space!  Since posting this notice it has been announced by the Scottish Government that Scotland has achieved Fair Trade Nation status – only the second nation after Wales.
